Required Testing for English Courses

Placement Guidelines

Guidelines

  • If you are required to take English 091, take it your first semester. Take English 101 in your second semester and English 102 in your third semester.
  • If you are not required to take English 091, take English 101 within your first 15 hours of coursework, even if you are required to take English 114 concurrently.
  • If you have fulfilled the English 101 prerequisite, enroll in English 102 within your first 30 hours of coursework.
  • If you have questions about placement policies, consult with a counselor. 
  • All English 091 and 101 classes use computers for writing, so knowledge of some word-processing program is helpful.
