WI. Writing Intensive Requirement

Three courses, between 3 to 9 credits total.

A Writing Intensive, or WI, course is a discipline-specific content course in which writing plays a major, integrated role.

Students select three different courses designated WI, one of which must be numbered 300 or above.

  • Students should be aware that the requirement is for three separate WI courses, regardless of the number of credits earned in each course.

WI courses are certified each semester and are labeled as such in the semester course schedule. Please note that the selection varies each semester.

The WI requirement for transfer students varies depending upon year of entry and transfer credits accepted by UH Hilo. (See the current UH Hilo Catalog for details.)
