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 August 17, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. in C10 Pomerantz Center (PC). Each student who plans to start the accounting major in the fall 2015 semester should plan to take the assessment on this date. 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.


You must have previously completed or be enrolled in ACCT:2200 Managerial Accounting (or course equivalent) this summer to be eligible for this assessment. If you failed the February 2015 assessment or June 2015 assessment, then you must wait until the assessment is offered in the fall 2015 semester.
