Tell me about the Department of English's "Writing Challenge"

College Writing I (ENG 11011) and College Writing II (ENG 21011) are standard college writing courses at Kent State University. Your ACT/SAT scores will assist academic advisors with the determination of course placement. Some students on the regional campuses may place in Introduction to College Writing I-Stretch (ENG 01001). Introduction to College Writing I-Stretch is the first half of a two-semester course that provides students with an opportunity to take College Writing I at a slower pace.  Currently, this course is offered only on the regional campuses. Kent campus students will not be placed into College Writing I-Stretch. Additionally, some students are exempt from taking College Writing I and, therefore, place directly into College Writing II. The Department of English strongly recommends that students placing into College Writing II wait until their sophomore year to take this course.
