Lower & Upper Division Writing Proficiency

All students must demonstrate competency in writing skills as a requirement for graduation. Students must first pass the Writing Proficiency Screening Test (WPST) before they can enroll in an upper division writing proficiency (WP) course. Both the WPST and WP course are not admission requirements. Lower Division and Upper Division transfer students should take the WPST upon acceptance to the University after they complete the CSU general education requirement A3 Critical Thinking/Logic course with a C- or better grade prior to admission. For additional information on the Writing Proficiency Screening Test, visit the WPST Website.
