Written English Proficiency Requirement
Academic certificate program courses require good writing skills. Students enrolled in certificate programs who do not have baccalaureate degrees are asked to demonstrate their writing ability soon after admission by passing the Junior English Proficiency Essay Test (JEPET), which is offered three times a year on Saturdays, or to complete ENG 414 (for those who do not pass the JEPET). For more information on the JEPET, call the Testing Center at 415-338-2271. ENG 414 is regularly offered through the Open University program through the College of Extended Learning.
