For information regarding whether you need to take WP001, please see the English Composition Placement Exam.

WP001 is a 50-minute impromptu essay examination offered online prior to FirstSTEP Orientation. Students with documented learning disabilities should contact Testing Services to arrange for special accommodations.

WP001 is scored holistically by the Center for Writing Excellence on a scale of 0-6.  Depending on the student's score, the student will be placed into EN099: Writing Skills Workshop or EN100: English Composition according to Southeast's English placement protocol.

Students will be asked to write an expository essay approximately two pages in length on a general topic. Sample topics will be posted shortly.
