You must have completed our COMM 1162 Introduction to College Communication course (or our discontinued Skills for College English course) or you must complete the General English Assessment and score high enough to be assigned to College English. (You must complete the General English Assessment at a George Brown College campus assessment centre.) If you have not met the prerequisite requirement by the first class, you will be withdrawn from the course.
