CPU 401

CPU 401 is a course offered each quarter to students who have taken the GWT two or more times, but not have passed.  Students who pass the course have satisfied the GWT requirement.

  • Students will focus on writing, revising, and proofreading strategies and produce five essays, from which they will select the best three to submit in a portfolio to be assessed by GWT readers.  If the portfolio passes, then the student’s transcript indicates that the GWT requirement has been met.
  • Students wishing to apply for enrollment into CPU401 should complete a CPU 401 application and submit it to the LRC Front Desk. 

NOTE: Due to the high number of applications submitted for each quarter, students that are admitted into the class typically submit their applications one full academic quarter before the quarter they wish to enroll. (For example, a student wishing to enroll in Winter quarter should submit an application at the beginning of Fall quarter.)
