Enrollment Policies: A score of 31 or higher on the SAT Writing & Language Test (or 23 or higher on the English portion of the ACT) is needed to enroll in WRT 110. Students with scores below these must take the Writing Placement Test to determine their writing course placement. Newly matriculated students who need to take the Placement Test normally receive notice from the English Department; those who do not should contact the department. Students do not need to take WRT 110 if they have transferred in WRT 110-specific credit to CCSU from a previous institution; if they earned a 3 or higher on the AP English Language & Composition Exam; or if they have been admitted to the Honors Program. Students who have transferred in WRT 100 credit can enroll in WRT 110 without taking the Writing Placement Test. Students with credit for ENG 110 cannot get credit for WRT 110.
