ENGL 099 - Fundamentals of Writing and Mechanics

This course emphasizes college level composition and is intended to facilitate transition into English 111. Minimum grade of “C” or better before matriculating from the Bridge program and/or to any other English course. This course may not be attempted more than twice.
