  • Written Communication Skills

    Effective writing skills advance ideas efficiently and persuasively, so the expectation is that students become adept at using writing as an effective communication tool. Students fulfill this requirement by satisfactorily completing WRS 105 together with WRS 106 or WRS 107, or the equivalent. Appropriate Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) scores in English composition may be used to satisfy this requirement. Please refer to the Credit Information page to learn more.

    An appropriate score on the SAT or ACT examination may earn a student exemption from, but not credit for, WRS 105. 

    Students will be able to:

    • Demonstrate effective written communication skills in relation to specific rhetorical tasks.
    • Construct original, well-reasoned arguments using a range of materials.
    • Integrate and synthesize appropriate and relevant primary and secondary sources in their writing.

    New students without prior college credit in Written Communication Skills will be placed as follows:

    • WRS 103: ACT English score below 18 or SAT Evidence-Based Reading and Writing or Critical Reading score below 430, or TOEFL iBT Writing score below 18.
    • WRS 105: ACT English score 18-31 or SAT Evidence-Based Reading and Writing or Critical Reading score 430-690, or TOEFL iBT Writing score 18 or above.
