Writing Exam Process Description

Students will review 10 pairs of short statements. In each pair they will be asked to select the statement that best represents their previous experience or background with writing. Based on their responses they will be guided to select the Writing course that is most appropriate.

No extra preparation is needed to complete the writing process.

All students will receive their results during orientation, except for SNL students, who will receive their results immediately.

The test is accessed through Campus Connect by following these links: "Main Menu," then "Self Service," then "Admission," then "Next Steps," and then "Placement Process (undergrad)" or "SNL Placement Process" (for SNL students).
