Online English at Arizona State University

For students on grade level in Language Arts, 11th and 12th grade is a great time to consider trying an online English Composition course. English Composition is a course that a lot of students need as a prerequisite for other college courses, but is a bit scary to try as a high schooler because of the intensity. ASU’s courses don’t bring the same risks you’ll have using your local community college.

Both English Composition courses offer self-paced or instructor-led formats.

Both cost $25 to register (each) and both allow you the option of paying $400 after the class if you want the course recorded for college credit on an official ASU transcript. If you opt not to pay $400, there is no transcript record of the course.

Even if you don’t want or need college credit, these professor-taught courses can be used as your high school curriculum!
