Completing Your English Requirement
To begin working toward completing your Composition requirement, you'll need to select the appropriate English course. This information explains how to do that. You should still meet with your advisor.
Step 1: Identify your English placement
Your placement level reflects your readiness to succeed in a given English class and is based on your ACT or SAT English and/or reading scores. If you did not take the ACT in the past 48 months or you want to challenge your automatic placement, take the ACCUPLACER test to find your placement.
More Information About English Placement
You will find your placement level on CatTracks. If you can’t find your placement level on CatTracks, send your W number to firstname.lastname@example.org and request it.
Your placement level is shown in CatTracks next to "English Placement":
Step 2: Find your first ENGL course
Depending on your ACCUPLACER score or ACT/SAT score, you may have multiple options. You should discuss options with your advisor or review all the courses on the Composition website to determine which course is best for you.
