Writing Skills Test
NOTE: Must arrive no later than 30 minutes prior to the WST.
You will be required to remain in the room for the 2 hour test period or until you are dismissed.
The Writing Skills Test consists of an analytic essay that requires you to demonstrate that you can think and write critically. You must pass the WST and satisfy the UWSR with a score of Clear Competence (8) to meet the requirement.
REFUND: There will be no refund of test registration student charges.
RESCHEDULE: You can only reschedule once. To reschedule a test date, a minimum of 2 weeks notification is required. Less than a 2 week notification will result in the forfeiture of the test registration student charge. If you are ill on the day of the test and provide the Testing Office with a doctor's note, we will reschedule your test, without an additional student charge.
To reschedule your test 2 weeks prior to your test date, go to:
