English Placement

ENGLISH PLACEMENT
OCC's English placement policy restricts registration into college-level courses for students who are not yet at the level of ENG 1510 Composition I. Where applicable, course prerequisites and/or corequisites must also be satisfied when registering for select courses.

Students who have placed into ENG 1055, ESL 1510 or ESL 1520, but have not successfully completed any of these courses may only register into select courses, excluding online and hybrid sections.

Students who have placed into ENG 1060, ESL 2510 or ESL2520, and have not successfully completed any of these courses may only register into select courses.

ENG 1075 - ENGLISH ESSENTIALS
This fast-track English path allows students to accelerate through first-year writing requirements. Successful completion of a 3-week, 1 credit ENG 1075 (English Essentials) paired with a 12-week, 3 credit ENG 1510 (Composition 1). Successful completion saves students 90 hours in the classroom and over $600 in tuition. Contact campus counseling offices or flyer for details.
