GWE Updates

Per AA 2020-04, the Graduation Writing Assessment Requirement (GWAR) and the Graduation Writing Exam (GWE) are temporarily suspended due to COVID-19 for Fall 2020, Spring 2021 and Summer 2021. Please note that students who are graduating Fall 2020, Spring 2021 and Summer 2021 are exempt from the GWAR.
