English Placement

Students without an ACT/SAT score are required to take English EdReady for First Year Composition Placement. Achieving a score of 90 on the English EdReady study path will provide the option of taking EH 101 or EH 105 with EH 115. EH 101 is the regular composition track, while EH 105 is the composition track for students who prefer a slower pace and extra help with writing. Both courses are the same number of credit hours and count toward a degree. The individualized assistance is free of charge through the required EH 115 studio (co-requisite for EH 105), and EH 115 is free.

Students who have ACT/SAT scores or have successfully completed or been awarded credit for EH 101 are exempt from English EdReady.

  • Note: Students entering with an English ACT sub-test score of 17 or below, or an SAT sub-test score of 420 or below who take English EdReady and reach the appropriate target score will be eligible to choose between the First Year Composition options of EH 105/115 & EH 101 mentioned above.
