University Writing Portfolio

Be Ready to Write in the Major

The University Writing Portfolio is a mid-career diagnostic to determine if students’ writing abilities have advanced in ways that can handle the writing demands of upper-division courses and courses in their major. Specific submission guidelines and forms are online and available for download as pdfs. They include step-by-step instructions on how to complete the University Writing Portfolio.

The University Writing Portfolio identifies students who demonstrate a need for structured writing support with upper-division writing requirements, as well as recognizes the standard of writing expected of all WSU graduates.

Because writing skills can make the difference between success and failure in the professional world, WSU aims to prepare graduates for success.

Submission Process

As of October 2020, the University Writing Portfolio will be submitted online: University Writing Portfolio Submission Process.

Completion of the University Writing Portfolio is a requirement for graduation at Washington State University.
