Pepperdine University's Junior Writing Portfolio (JWP) is a General Education requirement designed to promote the development of written communication skills.
All students admitted to Pepperdine University under the new G.E. catalog are responsible for the creating and maintaining a portfolio of formal writing assignments generated in their first four semesters of university study. (Students who were admitted to Pepperdine prior to the fall of 2003 are under the old G.E. catalog and are not required to submit a portfolio.) When students have earned 60 credit hours and have attended at least one semester of study at Pepperdine University, they will automatically be enrolled in JWP 301P, the Junior Writing Portfolio. Students will submit their portfolios to the JWP Committee for evaluation.
