Greetings from UCI Writing! 

This summer we will determine your starting point in required UCI writing courses, and this message is designed to help you begin that placement process. You need to get your writing placement before registering for Fall classes at orientation. 

Writing placement takes into account scores such as AP, SAT, and ACT. For the full list click here. Be sure to officially submit any qualifying scores to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions by July 15.
