All students are given the opportunity to submit preferences for their Words and Numbers section to be used in their placement. Each semester of your first year you will take a Words or Numbers course with the CORE course name (Core 120 for Words, Core 121 for Numbers). If you are placed into Words in the fall, then you will take Numbers in the spring (and vice-versa).
Incoming transfer students do not take Words or Numbers.
The FYS: Words & Numbers preference form for Fall 2023 will be open June 1-27 for incoming first year students via a link on this page. You will be emailed your placement on June 30th to your LC email account (if created by June 29th).
Descriptions for Fall 2023 Words and Numbers courses will be added late May.
Please email GenEd@lclark.edu if you have any questions.
