Frequently Asked Questions

I have transfer/AP credit for English. Do I need to take the English Placement?
You will be exempt from taking the exam if you have confirmed transfer credit for English I or a confirmed score of 3 or above on the AP English exam.  If you are unsure of your English transfer credit status or AP score, then you must take the exam. Please be sure that Wentworth has your final transcripts indicating a grade of "C" or better and/or an official score report from Princeton.  Please note that WIT does not accept IB credit.
I took the English Placement, but why is it listed as "Incomplete" on the New Student Checklist?

The New Student Checklist will update accordingly after your English Placement is reviewed by an English professor.  Once is it reviewed, not only will the checklist update, but an email will be sent to your Wentworth email address informing you of the English course you are required to register for the fall semester.

I took the English Placement, but I haven't received my placement results.

Emails are sent to students notifying them of their English placement.  If you did not receive this email, you can locate your results by logging onto LConnect. Under "Student Information", click on "View Test Scores".  The English Placement will appear as "WIT English Placement Exam" and the 4 digit score indicates the English course you have been placed into.
