To demonstrate competence in writing, all students newly admitted to the Faculty are required to write the English Language Proficiency Exam (ELPE) in December of first year. Students may demonstrate their competence in writing by achieving a passing grade on this examination (65 out of 90). The ELPE must be completed by 2B term or you will not be permitted to proceed in your degree program. If you do not pass ELPE the first time, you must have your exam reviewed with the Writing Clinic before you are permitted to re-write the exam. It is also strongly encouraged that you enroll in one of the Strategy Sessions offered the day before the ELP exam.
