Writing-Intensive Requirement

Persons Affected


Policy Statement

Effective Fall 2005, all students enrolled in bachelor degree programs must complete at least one writing-intensive course (identified with a W after the course number) with a grade of C or better to meet graduation requirements. Courses where the subject is writing (such as EGL 102, EGL 310, or BUS 141) may be required in your degree program, but they do not fulfill the Writing in the Discipline requirement. Electives vary each semester, so consult the list of writing-intensive courses on the Registrar’s Web site and speak to your advisor to make sure that you meet this requirement. Prerequisite: Completion of EGL 101 with a grade of C or better.
