English Corequisite

If you received a letter, phone call, or text about updated English placement in ENGL B1AC, you need to register for LRNC B512. The LRNC B512 course includes the transfer-level English course, ENGL B1A, along with a corequisite support class. In other words, registering for LRNC B512 provides another way to register for and complete ENGL B1A.
