Completing the First-Year Writing Program’s placement exam is an important first step in the UArts experience. This essay-based exam helps us place you in composition courses that will best serve your writing needs in college and beyond. If required to complete the exam, you will receive a test link and instructions via your UArts email address during the fall semester.

  • Students enrolling at UArts for the Spring 2018 semester will have from Monday, October 30 to Wednesday, November 15 to complete the exam. 
  • Once the exam is started students will have 96 hours (4 days) total to submit their writing. Students will receive exam instructions and the test link via their UArts email during the fall semester. 

Not submitting the online writing placement exam by the completion deadline may result in your being registered for courses based on standardized test scores or other criteria.
