COL 110 - BW FiRST, 1 credit hour


Prerequisite(s): Admitted Freshmen who report a score below 19 on the ACT Reading Subtest or below 26 on the SAT Reading Subtest or below 471 on the SAT Evidence-Based Reading and Writing Subtest. Students who qualify will take the course in the fall and spring semester of their first year.
Corequisite(s): Each section of BW FiRST is taught in conjunction with a specific section of a 100-level core course. Faculty teaching both courses will collaborate to match supplemental reading instruction to the reading goals of the core course.
The goal of BW FiRST (Freshmen in Reading Support Teams) is to increase students’ overall academic performance by providing them with the tools to successfully read and think about complex college-level texts. Each section of BW FiRST is taught in conjunction with a specific 100-level core class. BW FiRST students will learn and practice effective reading strategies that fit the unique reading requirements of the paired core course.
Students are pre-selected for enrollment and will be pre-registered for BW FiRST and the accompanying core course.
