Read & Write Gold

Now there’s a powerful new software tool that can help you excel as a college student. Read and Write Gold (RWG) is innovative literacy software that supports reading, writing, studying and research. Best of all, it’s free to LACC students. Los Angeles City College has a software license that allows any student enrolled in classes at LACC as well as faculty and staff to have the product in their home at no cost.
