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 January 12, 2015, at 5:00 p.m. in C129 Pomerantz Center (PC). Each student who plans to start the accounting major in the spring 2015 semester must 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 completed ACCT:2200 (6A:002) Managerial Accounting (or course equivalent) by the end of the fall 2014 semester to be eligible for this assessment. If you failed the October 2014 assessment, then you must wait until the assessment is offered again in the spring 2015 semester.
