By your second registration at UB, you should have already taken your Upper-division Writing Placement to ensure timely graduation and to enhance your academic performance in subsequent courses. In order to register for Advanced Expository Writing (WRIT 300)—an upper-division general education writing course required of all majors—you must either pass Practicum in Writing (WRIT 200) or score a 300 on the Upper-division Writing Placement Test.

The test, which can only be taken once, is administered by the Office of Academic Foundations and Transitions by appointment only during the month of April, and on three Saturdays: March 1st, April 5th, and May 3rd.

You must R.S.V.P. for this test below (if there is no R.S.V.P. field below, then this section is full—please try another date). Be sure to arrive a few minutes before the start time. Late arrivals will not be admitted. Bring a photo ID and a pen or pencil to the specified testing location.
