English Courses

On the basis of placement tests in reading and writing, students are assigned to English courses at an appropriate level. There are courses at the pre-college level, including a sequence of courses for students learning English as a Second Language, as well as a variety of transferable college courses. All courses numbered below 100 are pre-college courses.

Instructors in English department courses may in some cases expect students to meet with them individually or in small groups, in the classroom or at another appropriate location, either as a supplement or as an alternative to some regularly scheduled class meetings. The purpose of such conferences shall be to give individual instruction based upon student needs.

NOTE: English 071, 072, 073, 081, 082, 083, 091, 092, 093, 084 and 094 are all in the English as a Second Language program.

In all courses up through 099, students must receive a “pass” grade in order to take the next higher course in that skill. A “making progress” or “MP” grade indicates the need for an additional semester, but does not affect the grade point average.

Registration in some courses may be linked to registration in another course. Reading and writing courses in English as a Second Language and courses in several developmental English programs are linked courses. Please consult your academic advisor to register for linked courses.
