Writing Test Details

This one-hour exam consists of a type written response to a prompt issued by the Writing Department. Each exam is scored using a blind review process, and the exam score will determine student placement into RCS 110 College Writing A or RCS 110 College Writing A with the addition of a one-unit Studio (RCS 110S).

Most students will be placed based on their transcripts or test scores and, therefore, will not need to take the placement exam. For the most up-to-date information about courses and writing placement, please see the Writing Department pages.
