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 February 26, 2015, at 7:00 p.m. in W151 Pappajohn Business Building (PBB) and February 27, 2015, at 3:30 p.m. in W10 PBB. Each student who plans to start the accounting major in the fall 2015 semester should plan to take the assessment on one of these two dates. 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.

For more information about the assessment, please refer to the General Instruction Sheet and the Information Session Presentation.


You must have completed or be currently enrolled in ACCT:2200 (6A:002) Managerial Accounting (or course equivalent) to be eligible for the February 2015 assessment.
