Upper-Division Writing Requirements

According to UPS 320.020, courses used to fulfill or partially fulfill undergraduate students’ Upper Division Writing Requirement (UDWR) must be reviewed and certified by the University Committee on Writing Proficiency as writing intensive, writing complementary, or thesis courses. In addition, courses shall be submitted for UDWR recertification every eight years. The review and approval process is facilitated by the online curriculum system (i.e., Curriculog).
