English Composition

English Composition

Completion of ENG 112 or the equivalent. This requirement is ordinarily satisfied by ENG 111 and 112 (or EHS 120). Some students will need additional credits in ENG 100 and ENG 109 to complete the requirement. Reading test scores and a writing placement exam are used to determine placement. See the English Department pages for more information on reading placement. Based on their performance on the Writing Placement Exam, all incoming students and transfer students who do not transfer in sufficient applicable writing credits will be placed in the appropriate starting course: ENG 109 for 3 credits, ENG 109 for 1 credit concurrent with ENG 111/112, ENG 111, or ENG 112 (only students with previous applicable credit for ENG 111 are eligible for any ENG 112 placement). Writing Placement Exam performance will not exempt students from ENG 111 or ENG 112 but rather will determine if additional help through ENG 109 is needed during or before completing the ENG 111 and ENG 112 sequence. Transferring students must have completed a sufficient number of credits in writing courses that meet the state outcomes of UM-Flint’s writing courses to fulfill the English Composition requirement. Students transferring from schools on the quarter system must in most cases have completed three quarters of appropriate composition courses in order to fulfill the English Composition requirement. Students selected for the Honors Program ordinarily satisfy this requirement by completing HON 155 and HON 156. The University strongly recommends that students complete this requirement as early as possible in their first 45 credit hours of coursework.
