The timed pen-and-paper make-up FEE will be held during Orientation week on August 25, 2014 from 4 PM – 6 PM. Results will be available on August 27, 2014 after 5 PM and will not include written feedback.

If your first language is not English, however, and you do not take the online FEE over the summer, you should take the English Diagnostic Review Test (EDR) during Orientation instead of the make-up FEE. The EDR is administered by the Program in English Language Studies, and it includes the same essay topics that will be on the make-up FEE. The English Diagnostic Review will be during Orientation week on August 25, 2014 from 4 PM – 6 PM in room 14E-310.

No registration is required for the make-up FEE or the EDR.
