Writing-Intensive Course Requirements

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.

A "WI" next to a course in this catalog may indicate that this course can fulfill a writing-intensive requirement. For the most up-to-date list of writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Writing Intensive Course List at the University Writing Program. Students scheduling their courses can also conduct a search for courses with the attribute "WI" to bring up a list of all writing-intensive courses available that term.

Transfer Credits

To receive transfer credits, the courses must be substantially equivalent to courses offered in the desired curriculum at Drexel and students must have completed the courses with a grade of C (C=2.0) or better. The transfer courses listed should be used as a general guide and might not be acceptable for every major at the University. Drexel University makes every effort to keep this guide current, but cannot guarantee that every course will be acceptable for transfer. The number of credits a student can transfer will be determined by the academic department once the student has been accepted into the program.
