CUNY & CWC Writing Workshop policy:

Preparing you successfully for the CUNY Assessment Test in Writing (CATW) is something we take seriously. We know you do, too! CUNY requires that to re-take the Writing test you must attend and complete a remedial Writing workshop or course. Our workshops are FREE at no cost to you! They run a total of 24 hours over 6 days and you are expected to be in attendance at ALL TIMES and DAYS the workshop is in session. So, please check your personal, work and class schedules carefully to avoid a conflict with your workshop! Passing the exam is the mutual goal of your workshop experience. We know you agree!


If you're "pre-registered" in courses like EN-101, BI-301, HI-112 or any others for which a PASS in both Reading AND Writing is REQUIRED you cannot take those courses unless you have passed BOTH exams. For example, you cannot take EN-101 in JANUARY or SPRING unless you have already passed the CATW. You cannot take EN-101 at the same time as you take the workshop unless you are in an EN-101 ALP section.

So, if you haven't passed the CATW by the beginning of the SPRING semester you cannot take courses for which it's required.
