ENC 1101C - English Composition I Enhanced (Credit Hours: 4)

01 - Lower Level Arts & Profession


This course introduces students to rhetorical concepts and audience-centered approaches to writing including composing processes, language conventions and style, and critical analysis and engagement with written texts and other forms of communication. The course, moreover, introduces students to academic writing standards to prepare them to communicate clearly and effectively in college and beyond. This course is intended for students who will benefit from enhanced learning support with their composition and grammar skills. In addition to providing the same course content as English Composition I, this enhanced version of the course provides one credit hour of additional learning support such as active learning, reflective practice, individualized and collaborative instruction, enhanced focus on study skills, and additional review of the conventions of written communications in a college and/or professional context.


Satisfactory score on the placement test for non-exempt students only.




This course fulfills category A of students' General Education requirements in Communications. The additional one-credit hour of supplemental instruction and practice will appear as an Associate in Arts elective on students' college transcripts. This course fulfills the Gordon Rule writing requirement and must be completed with a grade of C or higher pursuant to State Board of Education Rule 6A-10.030. Effective Spring 2014, students who entered the ninth grade in a Florida public high school in the 2003-2004 school year, or any year thereafter, and earned a standard Florida high school diploma, or students who are serving as active duty members in any branch of the United States Armed Services, will not be required to take the common placement test (P.E.R.T.) or to enroll in developmental education at any Florida College System institution, including Florida State College at Jacksonville (per Senate Bill 1720, State Board Rule 6A-10.0315). These students shall be considered exempt from common placement testing and developmental education instruction and may accordingly enroll directly in ENC 1101 or ENC 1101C. For enrollment in any communications course beyond ENC 1101/ENC 1101C, exempt students will be required to take the common placement test. This course is recommended for Associate in Arts degree seeking students. Associate in Science degree seeking students are advised to take ENC 1101 to avoid concerns regarding financial aid and excess hour surcharges.
