Undergraduate Catalog 2012-2013

Freshman English Requirement

Students should take ENGL 1101 during their first term at GC unless they are exempt from it (score of 4 or 5 on the AP English test). All students must earn the grade of C or better in ENGL 1101 in order to fulfill graduation requirements. Students should take ENGL 1102 the term after they pass ENGL 1101 with a C or better.

Effective Fall 2010, students who have earned 60 overall semester credit hours but have not completed ENGL 1101 or ENGL 1102 must enroll in the next course in that sequence every semester in which they take classes until both requirements have been satisfactorily completed. Effective Fall 2011, this hour limit is lowered to 45 hours. Effective Fall 2012, the hour limit is lowered to 30 overall semester credit hours.
