University requirements must be completed by all students pursuing a University of Delaware undergraduate degree regardless of their college.
ENGL110 - Seminar in Composition
A 3-credit seminar that requires a minimum grade "C-". If a student earns a lower grade, the seminar must be repeated for no additional degree credit. ENGL110 is a unique, on-campus class that should be taken during a student's first year at UD. Credit for ENGL110 cannot be gained from AP exams in English or through dual or concurrent enrollment.
Transfer credit (for similar courses with titles such as Writing, Composition, Rhetoric, etc.) from other institutions that has been posted to a student's UD record as "ENGL166T—Transfer Elective" may be re-evaluated as equivalent to ENGL 110. Transfer students with such credit should follow the English Department's instructions to request re-evaluation of the credit. UD considers ENGL110 as an on-campus experience that is essential to the success of students. Students in 110 do much more than practice writing: They learn the expectations of college professors, hone their skills in project management, and engage in rigorous revision, as they write in and with a community of undergraduate peers. Transfer students seeking to receive ENGL110 credit for courses taken at another college or university should consult our transfer of credit page.
