Due to the fact that ENGL 0891, ENGL 0892, ENGL 1010, and ENGL1020 serve as prerequisites or corequisites to several other courses, the English Department at Roane State Community College recommends the following progression standards for English Composition courses:
Any full-time degree-seeking student should be enrolled in ENGL 0891, ENGL 0892, or ENGL 1010 (or ENGL 1020 if required for your major) each term until the student completes these writing requirements. Any part-time degree-seeking student should be enrolled in ENGL 0891, ENGL 0892, or ENGL 1010 (or ENGL 1020 if required for your major) for each 12 hours taken.
English Course Exemption
Students with an ACT sub-score of 27 or better in English may enroll for both English 1010 and 1020, attend English 1020, and receive six semester hours credit for both courses with the grade earned in English 1020. In the event the student does not successfully complete or withdraws from one or both courses, he/she will no longer be eligible for the joint credit.
