ENG121/ENG100 Accelerated Learning Program

ENG121/100 is a learning community where you take the required college composition course, ENG 121, while enrolled in a small companion class, ENG 100.

ENG 121 is a 3-credit-hour course required for all degrees and many certificates, and is transferable to other colleges and universities. ENG 100 is a 2-credit-hour course that does not apply to your degree or transfer, but is taught by your ENG 121 instructor to provide you the extra help and support needed to grow as an academic reader and writer and to develop strong student skills.

In this combined learning program, you will achieve College Reading and Writing Readiness (CRWR) while you work toward credit for ENG 121. You will have two hours/week to work on the following:

  • Reviewing academic reading and writing skills;
  • Exploring ideas for essays
  • Revising and editing drafts of essays
  • Improving comprehension while reading college-level texts
  • Building college success strategies and habits of mind
  • Becoming a more confident college student

Success in English Courses

How is learning English in college different from learning English in high school? English classes in college meet for fewer days per week, cover the same or more material in less than half the time, and require significant time outside of class to master the material.
