General procedures:

  1. The admission decision is based on the quality and potential of the writing submitted.

  2. All portfolios are reviewed by a team of professors who make the final decision on who is admitted.

  3. You do not need to be an English major to take Creative Writing courses.

  4. Admittance to a Creative Writing course does not guarantee any particular final course-grade; as in any university-level program, grades in a Creative Writing course are awarded on the basis of merit that is earned during course enrolment.

  5. Admittance to a Creative Writing course does not guarantee admittance to subsequent Creative Writing courses. Enrollment in each course is determined by portfolio competition.
