For Students


There are two writing requirements that students must satisfy to graduate. Both must be fulfilled by the end of the sophomore year.

  • Entry-Level Writing
  • Reading & Composition

AWP Exam

The Analytical Writing Placement Exam (AWPE) enables students to demonstrate proficiency in reading and writing at the college entry level.

Academic Honesty

The University upholds a code of student conduct and the College Writing Programs supports that code through its position on plagiarism and acts of academic dishonesty and conventions for ethical citation.

CWR1A Consultations
