For Returning Students

Students who entered UNC prior to the fall of 2012 were required to take English 101 and English 102. Some students were exempted from one or both of these courses on the basis of standardized test scores. Effective fall 2012 all students are required to take English 105; there are no exemptions. For students who entered UNC before fall 2012:


  1. If a student has taken and passed English101 but still needs English 102, the student should take English 105.
  2. If a student needs both English 101 and 102, the student should consult with an academic advisor and the Writing Program to find a comparable course at a different institution.
