The ability to write academic essays is one of the learning outcomes that have to be achieved by the graduates of English Language Education Program (ELEP), in Universities in Indonesia. This ability will be helpful for helping the students to complete their undergraduate thesis. Preliminary observation shows challenges faced by the students in writing academic essay. Given that they have learnt all courses of academic writing, there is an assumption that they should have achieved an expected level of writing ability. However, some facts show the opposite. Thus, this study intends to obtain a picture of their ability by analyzing these recent graduates’ academic essays, particularly the components of paragraphs (coherence, cohesion, unity) found in their undergraduate thesis. The current study also aims to find out the graduates’ perceptions of academic essay. Using descriptive research, the data will be collected through document analysis and questionnaires.
