The timed pen-and-paper make-up FEE will be held during Orientation week on August 29, 2016 from 4 PM – 6 PM in rooms 32-123 & 32-124. Results will be available on August 31, 2016 after 5 PM and will not include written comments.

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 29, 2016 from 4 PM – 6 PM in room 14E-310.

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