Entry Level Writing Program

UC Davis supports undergraduate writers by offering a variety of Entry Level Writing Requirement (ELWR) fulfillment pathways for students. The requirement, common to all University of California campuses, is meant to bolster new Aggie writers so they feel prepared for the writing tasks they will be asked to complete in their academic careers at Davis and beyond. Because the ELWR is designed to help you feel even more prepared for writing tasks ahead, you need to satisfy the requirement as soon as possible once you enroll at UCD.
