The Writing Program Placement Process

We use an informed Self-Placement model at Guilford College.  With guidance, students choose among the following options to begin their writing sequence: English 101, English 101 Plus, English 102, or English 102 Plus. Note: Students with scores of three on an AP English exam will be exempt from ENGL 101 and ENGL 101 Plus, and those with scores of four or five on an English AP exam are exempt from ENGL 101 and ENGL 101 Plus and will be given credit for ENGL 102. Historical Perspectives completes the foundational writing sequence allowing students to transition into further writing instruction in their majors and academic disciplines. Minimum grade to satisfy these requirements is a C- in ENGL 101 and ENGL 101 Plus, and a D- in ENGL 102and ENGL 102 Plus (p. 273)
