The Write Class

After a student is admitted to Boise State University, they receive an email regarding completing the online placement process for English 101, 101+, and 102 called “The Write Class.”

All students are required to complete this process before registering for an English course. The online system is designed to choose the best English program for each student to help make their first semester a successful one.

Questions about The Write Class need to be directed to program coordinators from the online system.

Financial Aid Packages will be posted to my.BoiseState by mid-March
