The normal sequence of courses for students who place into ENGL125 - English I Honors will be:

Students with AP credit in English may take ENGL125 for Sophomore Social Science credit. This is also true for transfer students who exhibit high level writing and analytic skills on their English Placement Test. This is acceptable because the content of ENGL125 is based on readings in social and political philosophy, while the course also provides a writing-intensive experience for the advanced composition student. All Arioch Scholars are eligible for Honors English.

A student may advance to Honors English (ENGL135) after completing ENGL100 based on the recommendation of the ENGL100 professor, a review of the student’s portfolio by the Honor’s English Coordinator, and with the permission of the department chair of Humanities and Social Sciences.
