Fall Course Guide

College Requirements

Junior/Senior Writing

The College requires all students to complete the Junior/Senior component of the LS&A Writing Requirement. Students must have completed introductory composition and have at least 55 cumulative credits toward their program before they are eligible to complete this requirement. Students must enroll in an approved course or writing program, preferably in the student's field of concentration or specific academic interest. Students must modify the course by means of the normal registration procedures. The course instructor must certify that the student has met the requirement at the end of the term.

Each term the English Composition Board provides a list of such approved courses. A course approved to meet the Junior/Senior part of the Writing Requirement one term is not necessarily approved in a subsequent term. The courses approved by the ECB for this term are listed below.
