Official Course Description

ESL.103 is a course for speakers of English as a Second Language (ESL) on reading and writing academic English intended to prepare them for the language tasks of an American postsecondary classroom. It is a classroom course (i.e. traditional face-to-face) that meets for 4 contact-hours every week. Prerequisites: Students enrolled in ESL.103 are required to have taken and passed ESL.101 with a C or better. Students able to demonstrate a high language proficiency may be allowed to waive this prerequisite based on the instructor's evaluation (equivalent to a TOEFL CBT score less than 213 but above 187).
