The purpose of all Developmental English courses at Virginia Western Community College is to assist students in developing competency in the skills that are necessary to succeed in college-level English courses. These courses do not count as credit for any degree at VWCC but may be required as prerequisite courses depending on student placement. Please meet with your advisor to determine if you need to take Developmental English courses.
Developmental English Pathway
The Developmental English program is designed to prepare students for college-level English in one semester. ENF 1 and ENF 2 courses are paired with SDV 108 to create learning communities. After successful completion of ENF 1 or ENF 2, students progress into ENF 3/ENG 111 or ENG 111 based on faculty recommendation.
