New English Placement Requirements for Freshman Composition

Options for Taking Freshman Composition

Based on your English placement, we offer three transfer-level English course options for succeeding in freshman composition at Foothill.

  • ENGL 1A  Composition & Reading (5 units)
  • ENGL 1A Composition & Reading (5 units) + ENGL 246 (2-unit co-requisite support course taken concurrently)
  • ENGL 1S  Integrated Composition & Reading (4 units) + ENGL 242A (1-unit co-requisite support course taken concurrently): This is part one of a two-quarter freshman composition course. Enrollment into 1S and 242A in the fall requires enrollment into 1T and 242B in the winter.

Follow Steps to Register for Your Option

Check your placement results in MyPortal

 

  1. LOG IN to MyPortal
  2. SELECT Apps from menu
  3. Under Students, SELECT Student Registration App
  4. Under My Records, SELECT View My Placement Results
  5. See Your Course Placement
  6. If you have questions about your placement results after checking in MyPortal, please contact the Assessment Office.

Review schedule of classes to select a class section that matches your placement option.

All ENGL 1A class sections are listed together in the schedule of classes. Those sections ending in C require concurrent enrollment in a corresponding ENGL 246A section as noted in the ENGL 1A section footnote.

If you are placed in ENGL 1A with NO corequisite requirement, DO NOT register for a section that ends in C — unless you choose to to take ENGL 246A for the added support.

If you are placed in ENGL 1A + ENGL 246,  select an ENGL 1A section ending with C and note the matching CRNs as listed below. You will need them to register for both classes together.

The same applies if you place in ENGL 1S with corequisite ENGL 242A.

If you experience any problems while registering in MyPortal, please fill out the A&R Help Form.
