September 2020 Start Date
This is where you can find all of the information about the WRIT Placement Assessment if you are starting your program in September.
What is the WRIT Placement Assessment?
Many Fanshawe programs requires a WRIT credit, a credit which is usually secured during your first semester. There are generally two options to securing a WRIT credit:
- Complete and achieve a passing grade in any 1000-level WRIT course
- Achieve a place-out grade on a Writing (WRIT) Intake Assessment.
The information below offers insight into how you can attempt the WRIT Assessment. Note: You will need to bring your Fanshawe username and password with you to the Test Centre during the times listed on the WRIT Assessment - Date and Times page.
If you have written the WRIT Assessment before, please contact the School of Language and Liberal Studies for advice on how your previous Assessment affects your current program. Contact information is available on the WRIT Contacts page.
- Look at the available dates for the assessment listed on the WRIT Assessment - Date and Times page.
- If you live a great distance from the College, consider writing this assessment using the online proctor option. More information about your writing options can be found on the Assessment Writing Options page.
