The Writing Proficiency Portfolio (WPP) requires students to further develop and apply skills and competencies from the composition sequence to other university writing contexts. The WPP consists of three course-related papers, including researched writing, to exemplify the student’s best writing in the English language. Additionally, the student must submit a well-developed Reflective Cover Essay to explain the student’s rationales for the portfolio selections. 

Here are three important steps to begin the process:

  • Students should buy the portfolio in the USC Aiken Bookstore. It is required for submission.
  • Students should read and carefully follow the instructions printed inside the portfolio.
  • Students should plan to attend a WPP workshop (offered Fall / Spring semesters). The workshops will discuss the Reflective Cover Essay and the assessment process.
