What if English is not my Native Language?

Each fall and spring semester, the English department offers several sections of CO150 specifically designated for non-native speakers of English.

Sections of CO150 for non-native speakers of English have the same objectives as CO150 for native speakers of English, including developing critical reading skills, understanding writing as a rhetorical process, developing a variety of rhetorical strategies to meet the needs of different audiences and purposes, and enhancing research and revision processes.

CO150 sections for non-native speakers of English are taught by faculty who have significant professional development in Teaching English as a Second Language and who understand the challenges non-native speakers may face when reading and writing in English.  Also, sections of CO150 for non-native speakers provide more support for assignment planning and revising, and they focus on helping students understand the important features of U.S. academic writing.

If you are interested in registering for one of these sections of CO150: College Composition, please contact Emily Morgan, Composition Program Coordinator, at (970) 491-1898 or email her at Emily.J.Morgan@colostate.edu. When contacting her, please include your CSU ID number.

After you send this information, you will receive instructions about registering for the class with an override or, if all the classes are full, on how to be on the waitlist for the section of your choice.
