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 25 at 7:00 p.m. in W151 Pappajohn Business Building (PBB), and on February 26 at 3:30 p.m. in W10 PBB on the University of Iowa campus. Each student who plans to start the accounting major in the fall 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.

There will be an information session to answer your questions on Friday, February 12, at 3:30 p.m. in C125 PBB. Attendance is optional but encouraged. 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 completed or be currently enrolled in ACCT:2200 Managerial Accounting (or course equivalent) to be eligible for this assessment.
