Writing Learning Support

Beginning spring semester 2012, ENGL 0700 and 0800 will no longer be offered.  They will be replaced by ENGL 0891, a single 3-credit-hour course.  A second 2-credit-hour course, ENGL 0892, will be available to students who make significant progress in ENGL 0891 but do not complete 0891 course requirements in one semester.

ENGL 0891 is a required Learning Support course for students who score below 18 on the ACT exam English subsection or below 77 on the COMPASS exam writing subsection.   

Early placement testing is offered prior to the beginning of each semester.  No placement tests are given on the first day of class.    

Successful completion of ENGL 0891 (or its extension, ENGL 0892) is required before a student will be allowed to enroll in ENGL 1010, Composition I.
