Course Delivery Method:

This is normally an in-class course but will be offered temporarily online via Blackboard Learn while college buildings are closed.

You must have completed our ENGL 1030 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 present proof that you have met the prerequisite requirement at the first class. If you have not met the prerequisite requirement by the first class, you will be withdrawn from the course.
