Writing Assessment Scores and Next Steps

Now that you have submitted your essay, you will receive your assessment score in an email two weeks after the DRWA Doctoral Writing Assessment course ends, about three weeks after the assessment due date.

The email will tell you if you tested out of any of the required writing courses and your next steps if you did not test out of those courses.  The required writing courses are free on the first attempt.
