Graduate Writing Examination Make-Up:
A timed pen-and-paper make-up examination will be offered September 13, 2013 from 3-5:30PM in 32-123 only for students who were unable to take the Graduate Writing Exam over the summer.  Because the summer evaluation is a more accurate measure of a student's writing ability, students should take the make-up only if it is impossible for them to take the online summer examination.
