ECE and Remediation
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. Approximately 80% of students who remediate in LS pass the ECE on the next attempt. Students MUST re-take the ECE within two semesters after successfully completing remediation.
