All undergraduate students must demonstrate competency in upper division writing skills before graduating from SDSU with a bachelor’s degree. The Writing Placement Assessment (WPA) is a timed test used by SDSU to determine if a student’s writing skills fulfill the Graduation Writing Assessment Requirement (GWAR). Based on the test results, some students will require an additional writing course or courses in order to fulfill this requirement.

As a student in the online program, you are required to take the WPA test between the time you are admitted and the end of your first semester. You are permitted to take the WPA twice in that semester and pay the testing fee each time you take the exam. If you do not take the exam in that semester, you won’t be allowed to register for future terms at SDSU.

Yes, use the materials available on SDSU's WPA website, write a practice essay and make an online appointment with a Writing Center tutor to discuss your essay.

Start by visiting SDSU’s Writing Center and registering there. After you have submitted the form, you will have access to the online appointment center. Look for tutors who offer online tutoring. When you register for an appointment with an online tutor, be sure to click “online tutoring” in the drop down menu on the form.

A student in the program can remedy the unit deficiency (think of these as unit electives) in a variety of ways. Among these ways include taking extra writing classes offered by the program, enrolling in summer classes offered at other CSUs through Cal State Online, and at local Community Colleges if less than 70 units have been transferred.
