The ECE is one of 10 Bachelor's Degree Requirements of Northeastern Illinois University. For more information on these requirements, see the Northeastern Illinois University Academic Catalog.

The Writing Lab is the place to learn about the written portion of the English Competency Exam (ECE). We can help you prepare for the exam in the following ways:

    • We offer free, one-hour workshops every semester on ECE preparation.
    • Once you have attended a workshop, we invite you to make an appointment and come in for tutoring.
    • View our ECE handout ,which covers some basic information about the exam.
    • We offer consultations with a tutor if you did not pass the ECE.
    • We can refer you to the Assessment and Testing website for the current semester's ECE test dates.
