Transfer Petition Forms
Use a Transfer Course to Fulfill the Primary Writing Requirement
You may petition only once, and should do so by the end of your first semester and before attempting to take WRT105. Receiving transfer credits for a writing course will not on its own satisfy the Primary Writing Requirement. To satisfy the requirement, you must complete this petition, and it must be approved by the Writing, Speaking, and Argument Program. Your petition will be accepted or denied based on whether the course meets the criteria for equivalency to WRT 105. If the course does not meet these criteria, we may request additional writing samples that demonstrate your competency in the requisite writing skills.
Before proceeding, and to increase your chances of submitting a successful petition, take the time to read "What Constitutes a Successful Transfer Petition". Reading the materials will increase the likelihood that your petition will be successful. Click on the button at the upper-right corner of your screen to access these notes.
