Writing English Proficiency Test (WEPT)

All graduates of CSU campuses are required to certify their writing competency before being awarded degrees. At SSU, this certification is achieved via a passing score on the Written English Proficiency Test (WEPT). Students should take the test during their junior year: they can, however, repeat the test if needed.
