Writing Skills Test
Traditionally, all SJSU students must take and pass an in-person Writing Skills Test before they are eligible to enroll in the upper division writing requirement and SJSU Studies.
The WST exam has been discontinued and students are recommended to complete the Upper Division Writing Directed Self-Placement (UDW-DSP) exercise that helps students place themselves in the appropriate upper division writing course at SJSU.
We strongly encourage all incoming transfer students to complete in the UDW-DSP before enrolling. For more information regarding the exercise, please visit the Upper Division Writing Directed Self-Placement (UDW-DSP) website.
