Writing Requirement

Each student must successfully complete ENG 101 First-Year Composition or the equivalent and at least ONE upper division writing course (e.g., COM 306, COM 307, COM 308, COM 311, COM 340, COM 350, COM 400) to ensure a professional level of writing competency.

Students who have earned a bachelor’s (or above) degree from institutions in which the primary language instruction is English are exempt from the the upper division writing requirement.

In Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering lower level writing is embedded in first-year coursework, and upper level writing is embedded in capstone.
