Graduate Communication Assessment

New graduate students entering the MAC, MBA, MSF, MSITL, and Dual degrees are required to complete the Graduate Communication Assessment (GCA) prior to their first COM 510 Leadership Communication class session.

It is highly recommended that students take the communication assessment immediately upon admission to Walsh. Students are not charged a fee for the communication assessment and the assessment may only be taken one time and is not repeatable.

The Graduate Communication Assessment will assess writing skills in three areas:

  • Grammar and mechanics
  • Style
  • Organization and development
