In light of ongoing efforts to revise our current University Core Curriculum and the May 8, 2020 retirement of the program’s director, Anna Priebe, the Writing Proficiency Program will be suspended as a requirement for undergraduate graduation with an effective date of Summer 2020. This means the Writing Proficiency requirement—including the exam and courses—will no longer be required for graduation beginning with the Summer 2020 semester.

We will convene a task force to recommend future directions for assessing writing in the Ball State University Core Curriculum. If you have any questions concerning the suspension of the Writing Proficiency Program, please contact Laura Helmsinterim dean of University College.
