Developmental English

Early in pursuing a degree, WSU students need to fulfill the composition requirement (English 1010 and 2020). In addition, many of today’s students must pass one or more developmental English courses in preparation for their composition requirement.

If you are a student with questions about which English course you need to take, please read our Developmental English Placement Information. For additional help, feel free to contact us.
