Individualized Writing Study Plan

All students are required to submit an Individualized Writing Study Plan to the Writing Program Director for review and approval before officially registering for the Interdisciplinary Writing Program. You must complete a minimum of 8 semester units of study (120 instructional hours minimum) selected from the list of courses on this form. You may submit your plan before you begin your course work or after completing up to 4 semester units. Once your Study Plan has been approved, you will be automatically registered in the Interdisciplinary Writing Program. By registering, you declare your intention to complete the curriculum within 3 years.

*Please note: previous coursework must have been completed in the past three years in order to be included in your Study Plan; Individualized Writing Study Plans will not be accepted after all course work has been completed. Your study plan can’t be changed after you have completed 4 semester units and must be followed.
