Writing Skills Assessment

All students must pass a writing assessment for admission to the undergraduate accounting major.

The next writing assessment will be administered on October 1 at 7:00 p.m. in W290 Chemistry Building (CB) and October 2 at 3:30 p.m. in W10 Pappajohn Business Building (PBB). Each student who plans to start the accounting major in the spring 2016 semester should plan to take the assessment on one of these dates (but not both). If you have previously passed the Department of Accounting writing assessment, then you do not need to take it again. Students do not need to sign up in advance for the assessment. Contact Kevin Den Adel (, 319-335-1412) if you have questions about the assessment.

Please review the information session presentation file to learn more about the assessment.

For more information about the assessment, please refer to the General Instruction Sheet.


You must have previously completed or be currently enrolled in ACCT:2200 Managerial Accounting (or course equivalent) to be eligible for this assessment.
