Writing Assessment — Associate and Bachelor's Admissions

The flexible and individualized learning aspects of Empire State College's programs require students to use and improve their reading and writing skills continually as they study at the college. In order to be successful from the beginning, students need to start with sufficient reading and writing skills.

The writing you submit will determine whether you are admitted into the college and will help us advise you on your first enrollment. Instructions are provided on the application. Please read and follow the instructions carefully. Many of our applicants are successful in being admitted; however, some are referred for further reading and writing development during their enrollment at the college. A few applicants may be referred elsewhere, if they need more skill development assistance than we can provide.
