*WE indicates a Writing Enhanced course. Four courses with the WE designation are required for graduation. FSEM and JSEM are automatically WE designated. Students may select General Education courses with or without the WE designation as long as four are taken at some point before graduation. More than four WE courses are suggested in this document, but more than four is not required.
