There are three levels of undergraduate writing courses at NSU:
COMP 1000 prepares students for COMP 1500.
COMP 1500 and either COMP 2000/2020 are required for most NSU undergraduate students.
Incoming students placed into COMP 1000 may request with their Academic Advisor to challenge their course placement in the composition course sequence. The Composition Challenge Exam is a 45-minute test that consists of writing a 500-word essay in response to a randomized prompt. Students may only attempt the exam one time, once it has opened/started students may not go back or return to the exam at any later time. The results of this essay will determine placement in either COMP 1000 or COMP 1500. Please note, no feedback will be provided and the score will be final. Once the score is posted, set up an appointment with your academic advisor to discuss your class schedule.
