How to enroll in a GWR-certified course:
GWR courses are searchable via the Academic Catalog and Schedule Builder. In Schedule Builder,
- Select "Expand Filters" in the upper right-hand corner of their Schedule Builder screen.
- Search by GWR courses.
Note: Schedule Builder's search filters do not overlap to limit results, so if you select the GE Area C filter and the GWR filter, Schedule Builder will display ALL courses that are EITHER GE Area C or GWR courses, not just courses that fulfill both requirements. For this reason, it is recommended that you use only the GWR filter when searching for GWR-certified courses.
What To Do After Enrolling in a GWR Course:
- Upon enrolling in a GWR-certified course, students should inform the course instructor that they are seeking to satisfy the requirement through the course.
- At the end of quarter, students must earn a C or better in a GWR-certified upper-division course, with a C or better on the major GWR writing assignment and at least 35% of the final grade based on the cumulative grade of all writing projects.
GWR Advisory Board
The GWR Advisory Board is a University Committee that serves in an advisory capacity to the Academic Senate Curriculum Committee and the General Education Governance Board, which approves course modifications and new course proposals for upper-division courses seeking the GWR designation. In addition, the GWR Advisory Board manages GWR-certified course-related faculty support and GWR program assessment.
