The WAC Requirement

The four-course core requirement in Writing Across the Curriculum applies to all first-time first-year students beginning with the Fall 2015 entering class.

Beginning in Fall 2015, all first-time first-year students must take at least two Writing Intensive courses, at least one Writing to Learn course, and at least one Writing in the Disciplines course before graduation.


--At least one WI course must be taken outside of the Department of English. Therefore, if you take ENGL 121 and ENGL 203 and both are designated WI, you still need to take a WI course in another department to meet the WI requirement.

--Because individual faculty must be certified to teach WAC classes, you will find that some sections of courses have WAC designations and others do not.
