RATIONALE FOR COURSE: EN 091 is tailored to assist students to refresh Standard English grammar and basic writing skills in preparation for EN 101.

COURSE DESCRIPTION: English Fundamentals (EN 091) is a review of the fundamentals of Standard English grammar and usage.  Students who have a score of seventeen (17) or below on the ACT Assessment Exam or an equivalent score on the SAT Assessment Exam in English shall enroll in English 091 and complete the course during the first semester of their Freshman year and prior to taking EN 101. Students must make at least a “C” to pass the course, and they are not permitted to withdraw from the course.  If a student fails EN 091, the student must repeat the course the following semester.  If an approved placement exam is offered, a satisfactory score may supersede this policy.  English Fundamentals may not be transferred to Louisiana College from another college.  (Credit: 3 add-on hours)
