This requirement may be satisfied with Writing 2010 or ESL 1060 (for students who speak English as a second language) when completed with C- or better.
Students whose native language is not English fulfill the writing requirement through the ESL 1040, 1050, 1060 sequence offered by the Linguistics Program.
A student whose Advanced Placement (AP) level in English is 4 or 5 is exempt from this requirement. Also exempt are transfer students who have met comparable lower-division writing requirements at other colleges or universities. An Associate Degree from a two-year college is satisfactory evidence of having satisfied the lower-division writing requirement.
New Freshmen students will be placed in WRTG 1010 or 2010 depending on their admissions index. For students placed in WRTG 1010, satisfactory completion (C- or better) is required for enrollment in WRTG 2010. Students without admissions index (or who want to appeal their placement) and those taking ESL will be able to complete a writing placement essay administered by the University Writing Program.
