Writing Proficiency Exam

NYU requires EWP to certify that students are proficient in writing. A student earns proficiency by completing EXPOS-UA 1Writing the Essay with the grade of “C” or better. Students with C- or lower are asked to take the exam.

Transfer students must take the Writing Proficiency Exam during their first term at NYU

Students who fail the Writing Proficiency Exam are required to take a four-credit course, EXPOS-UA 13 Writing Tutorial, or an equivalent.

To register for the Writing Proficiency Exam, contact Joanna Mendoza at joanna.mendoza@nyu.edu. Please put “Proficiency Exam” in the subject heading.
