English for Academic Purposes Program (EAPP)

EAPP is a two semester program for native and non-native speakers of English that allows students additional time to focus on English writing, critical reading, and research skills. Emphasis is placed on developing communication skills in preparation for U.S. social and academic interactions. Fall semester consists of WRT 101 Speaking and Listening I (2-credits) and WRT 103 Critical Reading, Reasoning, and Writing (6-credits). Spring semester consists of WRT 102 Speaking and Listening II (2-credits) and WRT 104 Research, Reading, and Writing (6-credits). Completing WRT103 and WRT104 with a C or better satisfies The College's Primary Writing Requirement. Not more than 8 EAPP credits may be counted toward the degree. Students are admitted into EAPP in accordance with the University of Rochester application process. There is no separate application for EAPP. Traditionally admitted undergraduates may also inquire about the Program. The EAPP Program is housed in the Writing, Speaking, and Argument Program.
