Registration in Basic & College Writing

After finding out class placement in Basic or College Writing, students must register for a section on SPIRE. 

Basic Writing (Englwrit 111) is open to all first-year students and fulfills the US Diversity requirement.  Students may decide to register for Basic Writing without taking the placement test if they feel they need more experience in composition before they take College Writing. 

Registration on SPIRE for Basic Writing is limited to first-year students to assure adequate spaces for new students.  Second year students who are required to take Basic writing must contact the Writing Program for registration.  Students are advised to select an open section before calling the Writing Program in order to facilitate the registration process.

College Writing (Englwrit 112) is open to all students who have taken the placement test and placed into this level.  Each semester the Writing Program offers approximately 85 sections of College Writing.  In order to assure a smooth process, it may be helpful to be aware of some registration facts:

For further information, contact Deirdre Vinyard, Placement Officer and Deputy Director of the Writing Program.
