More about the Writing intensive program
The Writing Intensive Program (WIP) is comprised of undergraduate courses across the curriculum that fulfill the writing intensive graduation requirement. Undergraduate students must successfully complete WIP course of at least three credit hours within their discipline in order to graduate. Students should speak with their advisor to learn which course(s) will fulfill the WIP graduation requirement for their major.
WIP courses are content courses that are designed to help students master the course content, learn about writing in their chosen discipline, and improve their writing skills. CAW provides peer tutoring for students enrolled in WIP courses. WIP peer tutors are selected by their departments and are hired and trained by CAW to provide support to students working on writing assignments in WIP courses. Students should speak with the instructor of their WIP course and/or contact the CAW for information about WIP peer tutoring.
