The Writing Program Placement Process

The Writing Program placement process will be completed during the Initiate course to determine whether a student begins their writing instruction at Guilford with English 101 or English 102. This process includes an evaluation of writing produced in the Initiate course and the responses to a questionnaire about their writing, reading, and critical thinking. Note: Students with scores of three on an AP English exam will be exempt from ENGL 101 and those with scores of four or five on an English AP exam are exempt from ENGL 101 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 a D- in ENGL 102 (p. 273)
