Mandatory Expository Writing Program (EWP) Assessments
- Writing Proficiency Exam
- All transfer students are required to take this exam during orientation. The results of this exam may determine if you are required to take an additional Expository Writing (EXPOS-UA) course.
- Students receive one hour to compose a brief written response (3 paragraphs) to a prompt provided at the start of the exam period.
- Responses should exhibit a student’s grasp of English usage and be coherent. They should also demonstrate an ability to use grammatical conventions and sentence structures in ways that would be appropriate in an academic or professional environment.
- Expository Writing Program (EWP) - Writing Survey
- In accordance with the Expectations for Admitted Students, students who submitted English language testing scores as part of their applications to NYU, are required by NYU Undergraduate Academic Affairs to complete an online writing assessment survey conducted by the Expository Writing Program (EWP), in order to participate in registration for fall classes. This survey is mandatory for any students required to take it and must be completed prior to registration.
