Variable Topic Course Descriptions

EN 211 College Composition II

New "unified" EN 211 College Composition II will start Fall semester 2015.  

There will no longer be differentiated sections of EN 211A, EN 211B, EN 211D, and EN 211E after the Summer Sessions of 2015.  

For students wishing to repeat EN 211A, EN 211B, EN 211D, or EN 211E, the new unified EN 211 will replace any grades from any of those differentiated sections taken in the past.

Northern Shores Writing Project
