Writing Assessment guidelines and details

  1. Students may log into the  WSA registration portal (the tool is on the Foster School of Business website) with their UW NetID. If you do not have a NetID yet, there are instructions on the registration portal with links on how to obtain a sponsored NetID.
  2. Students must indicate which type of photo identification they will bring to the test session in their registration form. The valid identification types are: passport, state issued driver's license, state issued ID card, Husky card, other college photo ID card, or military photo ID card. The name on your photo ID must match the name on your registration form. The University of Washington welcomes undocumented students; the Washington State Department of Licensing issues photo identification to Washington state residents.​
  3. Students must pay their registration fee prior to selecting their WSA test session.
