Grades for Writing Intensive Courses in Writing Across the Curriculum

To receive WI credit, students must complete the writing component of the course with a grade of C or better. Writing Intensive grades are entered separately from course grades on students' transcripts, as "P" (pass) or no entry. For students passing the writing component of the course, both the grades for the course and the WI component will appear on the transcript and permanent record. If a student fails the writing component, only a grade for the course will appear.

Students may pass both components of the WI course, pass the course but fail the writing component, or pass the writing component but fail the course itself. A student who passes the writing component but fails the course may receive credit for fulfilling the writing requirement but may/will still need to repeat the course to fulfill the major or general education requirement. Students who do not pass the writing component of a WI course must still satisfy the WAC requirements. Students should consult with their academic advisor to determine the most appropriate means of satisfying this requirement.
