Re-Enrollment Challenge Portfolio

In order to re-enroll at the university after having been prohibited from further enrollment for not satisfying ELWR in the allotted time, students will have to do the following:

Students who have completed at least one AWP class must:

  1. Pass a COPE-approved composition course, with a C or better, and
  2. Submit a portfolio that consists of:
    1. The graded written work completed in the aforementioned course
    2. An essay from the student’s most recent AWP course, as well as a reflection on how that essay does or does not meet the nine objectives of the Analytical Writing Program
    3. A short essay written on site and monitored by an instructor from the Analytical Writing Program (when it is not possible for the student to be on-campus, the process can be monitored via Zoom*)

Students who have either not taken the AWPE or who have taken the AWPE but failed to complete at least one AWP class must:

  1. Pass a COPE-approved composition course, with a C or better, and
  2. Submit a portfolio that consists of:
    1. The graded written work completed in the aforementioned course
    2. An essay assigned by the Analytical Writing Program, based on a selection of readings provided by the Analytical Writing program, along with a reflection on how that essay does or does not meet the nine objectives of the Analytical Writing Program
    3. An essay written on site and monitored by an instructor from the Analytical Writing Program (when it is not possible for the student to be on-campus, the process can be monitored via Zoom*)

Completed portfolios will be reviewed by a committee comprised of two readers: a representative of the Analytical Writing Program (either the Director or the Associate Director) and a representative of the College Writing Program that the student plans to enroll in (either the Director or Assistant Director). The two readers must agree. If the result is a pass, the ELWR is satisfied and the student is able to enroll in College Writing the next time it is offered. If a student’s portfolio does not pass, the student will be required to complete an additional COPE-approved composition course with a C or better and to submit a new portfolio, as outlined above. Students may only submit a new portfolio once a year. 

The re-enrollment process must be completed during the regular academic year. No portfolios will be reviewed during summer. For example, if you wish to return in the fall quarter, you must start the re-enrollment process in the beginning of May. 

*In order to ensure the integrity of this process, students will be asked to complete the “in-person” writing via Zoom with their camera on and follow the instructions provided by the monitor.
