January 2019 Start Date
This is where you can find all of the information about the WRIT Placement Assessment if you are starting your program in January.
What Is The WRIT Placement Assessment?
Most first-level students at Fanshawe College must take a Placement Assessment for the WRIT course. The evaluation of these assessment results allows us to assess your current writing skills and place you in the appropriate course.
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.
