Writing intensive classes are approved by the Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) Committee, and these sections are designated “WI” at registration and on student transcripts. Students enrolling in them should expect formal projects and informal writing-to-learn assignments throughout the semester. Writing and a process approach to writing are integral to the grading criteria as they support the subject matter and course outcomes. Writing intensive classes are voluntarily offered by faculty and not required by any degree program. Schools to which Cayuga students transfer may have Writing Intensive requirements. “WI” sections from across the disciplines encourage students to practice different kinds of writing for various purposes to communicate effectively in their academic, workplace, and citizen roles.
