The University of Alaska Southeast has officially implemented a new policy connecting GED Reasoning Through Language Arts test results with offered writing courses. Students who pass the exam can gain access to UAS writing classes and possibly even earn college credit! The course and accreditation available per score is as follows:
|GED: Reasoning Through Language Arts Score||Course (or accreditation) available|
|145-164||WRTG S110: Introduction to College Writing|
|165 or higher||WRTG S111: Writing Across Contexts|
|175 or higher||1 Credit of 100 Level English|
The descriptions for these courses can be viewed here. We have copied the information below.
