Writing Requirement Courses

Under the University of Florida Writing Requirement, all students must complete courses that involve substantial writing for a total of 24,000 words.

The content of a course approved for the UF Writing Requirement should meet the WR course guidelines, including assignments that contain extended analysis and develop original, sophisticated ideas. The course syllabus must meet the writing requirement syllabus policy (in addition to the UF syllabus policy) including a writing assessment rubric, and assignments and assessments should conform to the general education grade integrity policy. If the WR course also has a general education designation (i.e., B, C, D, H, N, M, P and S) it must also conform to the structure of a GE course.
