Students scoring below 18 on the English portion of the ACT or below 250 on the Accuplacer Sentence Skills exam are required to enroll in ENGL 0510 and its co-requisite course ENGL 1010. ENGL 0510 develops writing skills with special focus on the composing of essays assigned in ENGL 1010, the co-requisite writing class. The control of sentence-level features such as grammar, usage, punctuation, and spelling is emphasized, as is the development of vocabulary, reading comprehension, critical thinking, and study skills. Individualized, computerized instruction allows students to address discrete writing and grammatical skills while targeted small-group discussions, workshops, and conferences give primary focus to the writing of essays.
Students who complete all Writing Learning Support competencies earn a passing grade in ENGL 0510. A passing grade in the co-requisite ENGL 1010 class will satisfy WLS requirements regardless of the grade earned in ENGL 0510. ENGL 0510 does not satisfy graduation requirements.
