Fulfilling ENG 111 Writing Requirement/AP Tests
General Education Writing Requirement
In order to complete the WSU ENG 111 [GE Basic Skills] requirement, students must comply with the following:
ENG 111: This is a four-credit writing course that all WSU students must complete as part of the General Education Program. Multiple sections of this course are scheduled each semester. Students should take this course during their first year as a WSU student.
ENG 112: This is a one-credit research writing course that is designed for the following students:
Students who have had a three-credit writing course transferred from another institution. Whether a course qualifies for transfer is determined by the Admissions Office.
Students who have scored a 4 or higher on the AP Language and Composition Exam. Results of the AP exam must be sent to the Admissions Office to receive 3 credits towards fulfilling the ENG 111 requirement and to be eligible to enroll in ENG 112.
Students can check their DARS to see if they are eligible to take this course or can consult the Admission Office to verify the transfer of any writing course they have taken at another institution.
Transferred Course equivalent to ENG111: Students who transfer a writing course (or courses) that is comparable to ENG 111 and has been approved as an equivalent course do not have to take ENG 111 at WSU (the student’s DARS must indicate that the requirement has been met through a transferred course).
