The University Writing & Rhetoric Center is a free service for Cal Poly students, faculty, and staff designed to support writing and writing education across campus. The University Writing & Rhetoric Center offers one-to-one consultations to all Cal Poly students on any writing task. The CSU system-wide Graduation Writing Requirement (GWR) is administered through this office, including the upper-division Writing Proficiency Examination (WPE). The Writing & Rhetoric Center Office also oversees the placement of students into the appropriate first-year writing courses based on the results of their standardized test scores.
