Graduation Writing Test

If you advise students please remember to advise them about taking the GWT. If a student has completed 90 units they are eligible to take the GWT. If they have completed 120 units and have not taken the GWT, they will receive a hold. The hold will restrict their ability to register for classes. To remove the hold students need to register for the GWT through Bronco Direct and pay the test fee via BroncoDirect or at the Cashiers Office. An e-mail will be sent to their Cal Poly Pomona e-mail account that includes information for the day of the test. For more information, visit
