English Sequence of Courses

Results from CSM reading and English placement tests determine a student's placement for college level writing.

Some students may need to take preparatory courses in reading and English before they are eligible for ENG 1010, the first semester college-level composition course at CSM.

The English pathway shows students the sequencing of our reading and English courses.

Students with the following placements will be eligible to take ENG 1010T.

Sentence Structure 75-89


Placement out of reading (79 or higher) or completion of IDS 1010T.

English 1010T covers the same topics as ENG 1010, but it also includes a grammar review. ENG 1010T allows students who meet the stated criteria to take college-level English without completing ENG 0900.  Students must meet with an academic advisor to register for ENG 1010T.
