Writing Intensive Resources

UH West O‘ahu’s Writing Intensive requirement is part of a UH system commitment to incorporate more writing in courses from all disciplines. A “WI” course is a discipline-specific content course in which writing plays a major, integrated role. Students can enroll in course sections designated as “WI” to gain greater understanding of course content through writing, and learn how to write in ways appropriate to that discipline.

Writing Intensive Graduation Requirement

Students are required to take three Writing Intensive (WI) classes at the upper division level for graduation. A minimum of two classes must come from course work outside of the capstone class.

Students must have successfully completed or be concurrently enrolled in English 200 to register for any WI course.

The WI requirement for transfer students varies depending upon year of entry and transfer credits accepted by UH West O‘ahu.

Check class listing for WI courses available this semester. Note that the selection varies each semester.

Writing Intensive Assistance

The No‘eau Center provides free assistance to students on academic writing assignments in all disciplines. Tutors help students to work on critical thinking skills, discover and develop topics, generate information to support ideas, organize information, refine the style of a paper, and edit their own papers. Tutoring is offered by appointment, on a walk-in basis, and online via email. Students may schedule an appointment by either emailing, calling, or visiting the Center.
