Upper Division Writing Placement


In order to register for Composition and Research (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.  This placement should be taken by your second registration at UB.

This placement can only be taken once. You must R.S.V.P. for this placement using your UBalt e-mail address.  If there is no R.S.V.P. field below, then this section is full—please try another date, or contact Terese Thonus (writingplacement@ubalt.edu) to attend the placement as a walk-in. Be sure to arrive a least twenty minutes prior to the start of placement. Late arrivals will not be admitted. This placement is computer-based and will require your NET ID.
