Writing 100 is designed to help students of all levels improve their writing, but is best suited to those who have yet to fulfill the First-Year Writing Requirement. Upper-level students should have a compelling academic reason for enrolling in Writing 100.

Normal waitlist procedures apply for students who attend the first two classes. Students who wish to join Writing 100 after the first two class sessions must email the instructor to set up a meeting to discuss enrolling. Based on this discussion, the student and instructor will then make a determination on whether or not it is appropriate for the student to enroll.
