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.

The exam must be completed no later than Tuesday, June 23 at 12:00pm. 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. Exams for some students will be ongoing to accommodate deposit payments and matriculation after the conclusion of the Tuesday, June 23 placement exam deadline.

Following evaluation of exam submissions, students will be notified of placement results in preparation for new student registration.
