ECE WORKSHOPS: February 16 and 17th at 6pm, 125 Stone Center
The English Competency Exam is a 400-500 word essay exam required for graduation. Any student who does not pass the ECE must complete ECE remediation . We have qualified learning assistants and instructors that find and analyze your writing flaws, and help you become a better writer.
The remediation process consists of the completion of six passing essays in no less than six weeks. Students can accomplish this by taking LS 096 Writing Competency Skills (1 credit hour), LS 300 Enhanced Writing Skills (1 credit hour), or by receiving individual assistance from our dedicated learning assistants. Students that take LS 096 are required to sign up for the course during registration or audit the course. This course generates an average of 110 credit hours per year. ECE remediation assistance generates 315 credit hour equivalence yearly. Approximately 80% of students that remediate in LS pass the ECE on the next attempt. Students MUST re-take the ECE within two semesters after successfully completing remediation.

|Remember: You must have six weeks to complete your essays; therefore, any student who wishes to remediate at the beginning of each semester must sign up for assistance within the first seven days of the semester . This allows us time to prepare you before the exams are given.|
