All residents must pass the Illinois Licensure Testing System tests required for their content area before the start of the program. The required tests are listed in our testing guide.

Please choose and register for your tests as early as possible. Applicants who take tests in February (or earlier) have a real advantage, because they may re-test (if necessary) to complete testing requirements in time to join the program in late June/early July.
