Depending on their placement scores from the Written Proficiency Test, some students may be required to enroll in ESOL courses to develop or support their writing skills.
All required ESOL courses will be added to students’ list of graduation requirements, and Undergraduate students must either be exempt from ESOL writing courses or complete all required ESOL writing requirements before they can enroll in General Studies Writing courses. Because writing in English is very important for academic success, the university expects undergraduate students to complete ESOL courses within their first year of study. Graduate students are expected to follow the recommended semesters of enrollment provided by the ESOL Program Office.
While the Written Proficiency Test may not be retaken, all students will be reassessed during the first week of the semester that they enroll in their required courses to ensure that they were appropriately placed.
