GWE Updates

The University is in the process of reviewing graduation candidates’ records in light of the temporary limited suspension of the CSU Graduate Writing Assessment Requirement (GWAR).  Your record will be updated accordingly before the end of the Spring 2020 semester, prior to the awarding of degrees.  There is nothing further you need to do at this time.  

If you registered for the GWE exam for April 18, 2020, you should have received your refund; if you have not received it, or have any questions, please contact Andrea Giordano, her email is: agiordano@csudh.edu

We thank you in advance for your cooperation during this difficult time as we strive to keep our students, families, communities, and ourselves safe and healthy.

Please continue to monitor our website and  your Toromail for regular  campus updates. You can access up-to-date information about the DH COVID-19 health alert on: https://www.csudh.edu/alert/
