  Newark Undergraduate Catalog 2006-2008 Liberal Arts Colleges Newark College of Arts and Sciences Degree Requirements English Composition  

English Composition

Every student must successfully complete two English composition courses (21&62:350:101-102 or their equivalents) with a grade of C or better. Students must be enrolled in a composition course, or preparatory course, as determined by the established placement standards at the college, each and every term until the requirement is satisfied, unless otherwise advised by the writing program or the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs.

Students who do not pursue this requirement may be compelled to carry a reduced credit load and to defer their probable date of graduation.

Completion of the English composition requirement is prerequisite to the Writing across the Curriculum requirement. It should be understood that students are expected to write effective English in all courses. A student who consistently writes in an unsatisfactory manner, even though English composition has been passed, may be required to complete appropriate remedial work.
