Writing Placement (Undergraduate Students)

One part of the UH-Manoa general education core is the Foundations in Writing (FW) requirement. ELI 100 is one of the courses that meets the FW requirement. Transfer students who have already taken a course that is equivalent to ELI 100 or ENG 100 do not have to take an FW course here at UH-Manoa. All others will be placed based on ELI exemption criteria (if exempt), or by taking the ELI’s writing placement test.

  1. Those who are exempt from the ELI based on attending school for 6 years or more in the U.S., Australia, Canada (except Quebec), Ireland, New Zealand, or the United Kingdom will be placed into an appropriate English Department writing course based on SAT/ACT scores. Those who were exempt basesd on years of schooling but feel strongly that their writing is actually more non-native-like should contact the ELI.
  2. Those who are exempt from the ELI based on other exemption criteria are placed into ELI 100.
  3. Those who do not meet any ELI exemption criteria must take the ELI’s writing test, along with the listening and reading sections of the ELI Placement Test.
