FAQ for Students
Students admitted prior to the 2019-20 academic year are not required to take a writing intensive course in their major(s). In recognition of the fact that writing is oftentimes discipline specific, students admitted in the 2019-20 academic year or later who elect to complete more than one major will need to complete all of the requirements, including the writing intensive — or writing in the major — requirement, for each major.
All writing requirements must be fulfilled prior to graduation. No courses will be designated writing intensive retroactively by student petition.
