English Composition Board (Division 360)

Placement in ECB Introductory Tutorial or Transfer Tutorial is determined by the ECB Writing Assessment given during Orientation to all entering LS&A students and all students required by their programs to take Introductory Composition. The writing assessment is administered during Orientation; the ECB notifies academic units of their students' placements, and academic unit counselors convey the information to their students. Those placed in ECB tutorials must enroll in an ECB course as the first part of their writing requirement. No substitute for the ECB placement will satisfy the College writing requirement.

To enroll in an ECB course, students select a section compatible with their schedule from the LS&A Time Schedule, from updated course lists at department counseling offices, or from the corrected LS&A Time Schedule outside 1213 Angell Hall. Students then proceed to CRISP for registration.

NOTE: Transfer students may receive placement into either Introductory Tutorial, Transfer Tutorial, or English 220, or they may exempt from Introductory Composition; therefore, a transfer student may enroll in a Transfer Tutorial only if that is his/her placement.

Students must attend the first class meeting to maintain their place in the class. If a student must miss the first class meeting, she/he must notify the ECB (in writing) of the intended absence prior to the first day of classes.

Students who receive a designation of Exemption with Writing Workshop MUST come to the ECB Writing Workshop, 1025 Angell Hall, before the fifth week of the Fall Term to receive writing instruction before being certified for Exemption. Otherwise, they will be re-classified into Introductory Composition.

Students are welcome to visit the ECB office at 1025 Angell Hall to discuss their writing assessment or to ask for course information.

See the introduction to this Course Guide for information about the LS&A Junior/Senior Writing Requirement and for a list of those courses approved by the ECB for satisfaction of that requirement.
