Choosing an English Course

If you have taken the Advanced Placement (AP) test in English and earned a score of "3" your AP test will give you credit for ENG 101. Please submit your AP scores to the Registrar's Office. Therefore, register for an ENG 102 course for the fall semester.

Please note that no credits are granted until official AP scores have been receives in the Registrar's Office. Be advised that taking AP classes without taking the AP exam will not give you credits.

If you have a verbal SAT score of 580 or higher, or have a verbal ACT score of 25 or higher, please register for ENG102 H. You will automatically be given credit for ENG 101 if you earn a grade of "C" or better in ENG 102H.

If your verbal SAT score is less than 580 or your verbal ACT score is less than 25 and no AP or IB credits are forthcoming, please register for ENG 101.

The University will monitor your English course selections and will require that you adjust your schedule if your selections are not appropriate. A course change may affect your entire schedule, so please choose courses carefully.
