Registration Information and Prerequisites

It is highly recommended you take 10A as soon as you are able to.

Our classes tend to get impacted. Because WCWP 10A, WCWP 10B, PHIL/POLY 27, and PHIL/POLY 28 need to be completed in sequence, the sooner you take 10A, the less likely you are to incur delays in your General Education Requirements progression. 

Enrollment in WCWP 10A is only open to Warren College students who have successfully satisfied the university Entry Level Writing Requirement (ELWR)*, also known as Subject A. Students may clear the ELWR in a variety of ways, including through previous test scores, classes, or a placement exam. Students that do not clear the ELWR requirement must take classes with the Analytical Writing Program before they can be eligible to enroll in Warren Writing. 

*Students may not enroll in WCWP 10A until their record reflects they have satisfied this requirement. We do not authorize students to enroll in this course prior to fulfilling this requirement. We do not accept self-reported grades or test scores for authorization.
