Writing Program

The Writing Program

Writing Program courses provide the foundation for writing in college and beyond. The program offers core undergraduate, "gateway," writing courses. These fulfill two levels of writing requirements for most undergraduate degree programs at IUPUI.

Students generally fulfill the first level requirement by using Guided Self-placement into W131, but they may also place themselves into W130-W131 (Stretch) or W140 (Honors).

Second-level requirements are fulfilled by completing a course from several options, depending upon the student’s academic program. Those options currently include W231 or W270 (formerly W132). Students who have completed W132 by the end of Fall 2013, will not need to take W270. Beginning in Spring 2014, W132 will no longer be offered, and W270 will replace it.

Diverse in content and purpose, yet united in quality, these courses support the University’s mission and its Principles of Undergraduate Learning in unique and exciting ways.
