This course focuses on the language skills needed to successfully enter ENGL 110 Freshman Writing Seminar. Emphasis on sentences, paragraphs, and expository patterns, combined with individual attention to writing and reading weaknesses, enable the student to understand the writing process—from generating topics to revising for audience and clarity. Students with a verbal SAT I score below 580 (500 on SAT verbal) take a diagnostic test during registration; those scoring high on the diagnostic test are exempt from ENGL 100 and may register for ENGL 110. A diagnostic essay must be passed successfully at the end of the course in order for students to be eligible for ENGL 110 entrance. Does not meet the General Studies requirement for University Skills and Requirements.
