Clearing English Remediation

 How Do I Clear Remediation in English?

Satisfy EO 665

If you are designated remedial in English, you must be enrolled in a writing course that will allow you to clear that remedial requirement within your first year of study. Being enrolled in either English 1A or English 1AF/S satisfies this requirement.

Clear Remediation

 

Students taking English 1A clear remediation when they earn a passing grade in the course.

Students taking Stretch English can clear remediation in one of two ways:

  • In Fall: Earn a B or better in all English 1AF (fall) coursework and earn 2.5 on the English 1AF midyear ePortfolio.
  • In Spring: Earn a passing grade in English 1AS.

Although you will clear remediation with a D- in either course, you will not receive GE Area A2 credit for the course.

 

What Happens If I Do Not Clear Remediation in this course?

If you are UGRM and enrolled in English 1A, and you do not pass English 1A in the fall, you will retake English 1A in the spring. You will have a second chance to earn the required D- or better at that time. You should plan to work with the Developmental Studies office to retake the course.

If you are UGRM and enrolled in Stretch English, and you do not pass English 1AS in the spring, you will work with the Developmental Studies office to decide on your path forward to completing your writing requirements and clearing remediation.

 

How Do I Earn A2 Credit?

 

Satisfy the Prerequisites Enroll in an A2 course:

The Reflection on College Writing is a prerequisite to English 1A or its yearlong equivalent, Stretch English (ENGL 1AF and ENGL 1AS).

Earn a C- or better in an A2 course:

 

English 1A satisfies Written Communication I, GE Area A2.

English 1AS also satisfies Written Communication I, GE Area 2.

To earn graduation credit in this category, students must complete either the one-semester or the two-semester course with a grade of C- or better.
