Becoming a WA
WA Seclection Process
Writing Associates are selected once a year. Students are nominated by professors, current WAs, or peers. Nominated students will receive notification and be asked to apply for the position. Applicants must submit a paper written for a class, do a mock WAing of a student paper, write a cover letter, and submit two letters of recommendation. Interviews are then conducted, and students are informed of final decisions before pre-enrollment for the Fall semester. Selected students will enroll in English 1C [PDF], a required gateway course for all new WAs.
The 2015 WA nomination period is now closed. For students intertested in learning more about applying, please click the links below for details.
