WPP Annual Calendar 2015/2016
All incoming students are informed of the WPP requirement in their orientation and their freshman admission paperwork.
All students receive an email from the WPP faculty explaining the WPP requirement for graduation.
Juniors receive a message from the Department in which they are majoring reminding them that their portfolios will be reviewed in November. All juniors also receive an email from WPP faculty reminding them of the upcoming deadline.
Departments begin to evaluate the juniors’/seniors’ portfolios. Departments inform all juniors/seniors of their status – met expectations or did not meet expectations and advise them of what they need to submit their revised portfolios. Departments report these results to the Registrar’s office and to the Director of the WPP/WID Program.

Students whose portfolios did not meet expectations enter the portfolio revision program that the university arranges.
Departments complete review of revised portfolios.
All departments remind their majors about the requirements for the departmental writing portfolio. (Depending upon when they declare the major, all students should receive at least one such reminder before the junior year.)
The university offers a program to enable students to improve their writing and revise their portfolios.
Whenever a student declares a major: he/she should be given a paper statement of the department’s procedures for assembling the writing portfolio and a paper copy of the rubric by which the portfolio will be evaluated.
