George Brown students enrolled in a diploma program that requires College English (COMM 1007), must successfully complete COMM 1007 to satisfy the university-level English admissions requirement in their application to a GBC degree program. If the student fails COMM 1007, they must attempt the course a second time to satisfy diploma requirements.

Should the highest grade from the two attempts still fall below the minimum university-level English admissions requirement, then the George Brown student may register in the U-level English course.  The successful completion of this course may then be applied towards the George Brown degree program admissions.
