If I received a 30 on my ACTs or a 680 on my SATs and tested into ENG 102, do I have to take ENG 101?
No. If you test into ENG 102 or have already taken ENG 102, you are exempt from ENG 101.
I received AP credits for my ENG 101; can I just sign up for ENG 102?
Yes. If you have transferred your credits to UNLV, you are eligible for ENG 102. If they are not in our system, take your copy to the ENG department to be placed into ENG 102.
If I received a 17 or below on my ACTs or a 490 or below on my SATs and did not test into ENG 101, but I tested into ENG 101E, do I receive credit for the course?
Yes. You will need to take ENG 101E, which is a pass/fail course, then you will take ENG 101F for a grade the following semester. The ENG 101E and ENG 101F will give you the equivalent of ENG 101. You will then take ENG 102.
My SAT or ACT scores or lack thereof do not accurately reflect my writing ability. Can I still place into ENG 101?
I took a philosophy course that was titled "Intro to Logic"; will this course satisfy the requirement?
PHIL 102 is titled "Critical Thinking and Reasoning"; unless it is the same title, it will not come in as our PHIL 102. You will need to get a course description and compare it with our course description in the university catalog. If you still feel it is the same course, drop off a course description with your advisor, who will fill out the necessary paperwork if appropriate.
