NOTE: ALL SECTIONS OF QUALIFIED COURSES MAY NOT OFFER WRITING REQUIREMENT CREDIT IN A PARTICULAR TERM. THE SCHEDULE OF COURSES IDENTIFIES THE COURSE SECTIONS AND AMOUNT OF WRITING CREDIT (2, 4, OR 6 IN THOUSANDS OF WORDS) AWARDED FOR A GIVEN TERM IN THE 'WM' COLUMN. THESE COURSES ARE ALSO AVAILABLE UNDER COURSE PROPERTIES IN THE COURSE LISTINGS-SEARCH.
The writing in such courses will be evaluated on content, organization and coherence, argument and support, style and mechanics. Evaluations will be on individual work and the evaluated work will be returned prior to the last day of class. Review the Writing Requirement Evaluation Criteria.
Writing course grades have two components. Professors will indicate whether or not students met the writing requirement AND will assign a course grade. Therefore, to receive writing credits students must receive a minimum grade of 'C' (2.0) AND satisfactory completion of the writing component. It is possible not to meet the writing requirement and still pass the class. Students should review their degree audits after receiving their grades to verify receipt of credit for the writing component.
