Fulfilling ELWR prior to enrolling in classes at UC Davis
Prior to enrolling in classes at UC Davis, students can fulfill the Entry Level Writing Requirement (ELWR) in several different ways explained below.
All of these ways of fulfilling ELWR before enrolling in classes at UC Davis involve a process that takes time to be completed. Students should follow these steps to make sure their scores or transferable course credit are properly documented:
- Request that official scores/transcripts be reported to Admissions by the organization involved with your ELWR fulfilling event (College Board, the college where you took a course, etc.).
- Wait for Admissions to process those official scores or transcripts once they are received. Processing time varies depending upon when the scores are reported to Admissions. The sooner the scores are reported, the faster ELWR status will be updated.
- Check student records in Oasis to determine if official scores have been reported, received, and processed by Admissions. You can view your ELWR status on OASIS > Academic Record > Exams & Events.
Note: Students become ELWR fulfilled before enrollment at UC Davis only once the OASIS record lists them as ELWR fulfilled. If OASIS lists a student as ELWR required but the student expected to see that they had fulfilled ELWR via a score or transferable course credit, the student should check that their official score/transcript was sent (by College Board, etc.) and received (by checking OASIS). The Entry Level Writing office does not receive or process official scores or transcripts.
