Writing Placement

Writing Placement Exam (for non-international students) - Students will place into the following categories:

  • FCWR-101
  • WRIT-100
  • WRIT-100 and  EDUC-108

  • If students place into WRIT-110 and FCWR-111, they must take WRIT-110.
  • If students place into WRIT-110 in both Reading and Grammar, they must take WRIT-110.
  • If students place into FCWR-111 in both Reading and Grammar, they must take FCWR-111.


Important Tips:

  • FCWR-111 (3 credits): Writing Composition I for International Students is equivalent to FWCR-101 (3 credits): Writing Composition I (taken by non-international students).
  • WRIT-110 (5 credits): Basic Writing and Reading for International Students - This course does not count toward requirements for graduation, but is required if students do not place into FCWR-111.
  • WRIT-100 (4 credits): Basic Writing and Reading (for non-international students) – This course does not count toward requirements for graduation, but is required if students do not place into FCWR-101.
  • EDUC-108 (3 credits): College Reading Strategies (for non-international students) -  This course does not count toward requirements for graduation, but it is required if students place into it on the Reading Placement Exam.
  • If students place into WRIT-100, they should have taken a Reading Placement Exam to determine if they need to enroll in EDUC-108. Be sure to check their results on both the Writing Placement and Reading Placement exams.
  • If students receive a PR in any course, they must repeat the course.
