Frequently Asked Questions
Courses labeled restricted require an identifiable level of competence to succeed and are usually determined by prior learning. For example students are placed in English 150, College Composition either by successfully completing English 100, English Essentials, or by scoring 87 or above on the Compass Test or 20 or above on the ACT. As all learning is developmental, many restricted courses require prerequisite courses (usually from the same department). To discover whether the course you intend to take is restricted, please visit the course descriptions in the back of the General Bulletin or in our on-line catalog.
