I Received Between a 2.6 - 1.9 GPA

YOU’RE READY TO GO! BUT IF YOU'RE FEELING RUSTY, WE SUGGEST THAT YOU GET ADDITIONAL SUPPORT

It turns out that students who earned a High School GPA between 2.6 and 1.9 are more likely to pass English if you start in transfer-level English 1A. Research suggests that you’re likely to do even better at transfer-level with additional support.

Here’s a graph to show you what we mean.

ADDITIONAL ACADEMIC SUPPORT:

  • For extra in-class support, select a section of English 1A that includes face-to-face computer lab time in the Learning Resource Center (LRC). You may want to avoid any English 1A section that is a "Distance Education Class" if you would like extra in-person support from the instructor. 
  • Visit the Tutoring Center and meet with a writing tutor.
  • Participate in Learning Resource Center Workshops.
