Satisfying C1 at a Community College

California Community Colleges Logo

California community colleges offer many classes during the summer and during the academic year that satisfy the Entry Level Writing Requirement (ELWR) and Composition 1 (C1) General Education requirements. Admitted students who wish to satisfy the ELWR and C1 requirements prior to beginning at UCSC may choose to take a course listed below. Note that this option is only available prior to beginning at UCSC. Once a student begins enrollment at UCSC, satisfaction of the ELWR and C1 requirements will take a different route.

Students electing to take an ELWR and C1 English course during the summer must inform Admissions. If students change courses from what was listed on their application, they are required to notify the Office of Admissions in writing at

Students must ensure that the college sends official transcripts to UCSC's Office of Admissions. To confirm transcripts have been received, continue to check your student portal at For further questions regarding transcripts, please contact the Admissions Office. In addition, the preceptor of your college at UCSC should be notified since placement in Core will be impacted.


This list was compiled by the UCSC Admissions Office from the ASSIST website (last updated December 2010). If you have any questions, please contact the Articulation Office (831) 459-1772.
