What is ENGL 93/99/101?

This course includes students enrolled in ENGL 93, ENGL 99, and ENGL&101 in one class together.

ENGL Acceleration

This course offers ENGL 93 or ENGL 99 students the opportunity to complete an additional ENGL level in the same quarter. At the beginning of the quarter, ENGL instructors provide students with the course objectives for each level. Then, based on student performance, students can "jump" a level through acceleration, saving both time and money! Students are given the course outcomes for both levels and are encouraged to improve their writing skills. Part-way through the quarter, all students meet with their instructors to discuss their progress. If a student has met the outcomes for a higher level, the instructor updates their registration to the higher level. With the acceleration option, a student can complete two levels of English in one quarter.

I-BEST Support
