Frequently Asked Questions

 

What has to be done to fulfill the writing requirement?

Carleton's writing requirement has three components. First, you must successfully pass an argument and inquiry seminar - a writing rich course. Second, you must turn in a portfolio by the middle of your sixth term at Carleton. Information on the portfolio can be found at Carleton's Writing Program web site. You will also be receiving an actual portfolio when you arrive on campus. Third, you must complete another writing rich course sometime before you graduate. All writing rich courses are designated by a WR2 and are offered in most departments.
