WST Prerequisite:

Beginning Fall 2014 the prerequisite for the WST is the completion of the CSU GE A3 with a grade of C or better. All students are strongly encouraged to complete a second English composition course as part of their lower division GE prior to transferring to SJSU (either to meet CSU GE Area A3 or C2). In doing this students will be more prepared to pass the WST and 100W course at SJSU.
Once the following recommended course has been completed with a grade of C or better, students should contact our testing office: testing.sjsu.edu to register for the WST exam at SJSU (passing the WST prior to your first semester at SJSU will prevent delays in registration for upper division courses):
