English 105 and English 100 have identical requirements and expectations, and both
courses are transferable to UC/CSU. The major difference between both courses is that
English 105 offers students more time in the classroom with instructors to ensure
English 105 courses are 80 minutes longer per week, which provides:
- more in-depth guidance on writing assignments
- more in-class practice
- more time interacting with peers
- more time with your instructor in and out of the classroom
|English 105 is Recommended For:
- students challenging out of English 846

- students who received a “C” in English 846
- students who graduated with a high school GPA of 2.0-2.59
