Dual and Concurrent Enrollment Policy for ENGL110 - effective June 2017
The Composition Program's ENGL110 course is an essential and required experience for all UD students. The course offers much more than skills-based writing practice: students engage in lab-like writing workshops designed to prepare them for the specific writing needs they are encountering in their other university courses, and they are introduced to the intellectual culture and the academic habits necessary for success in a research-intensive university. For these reasons, all entering freshmen should take ENGL110 during their first semesters at UD.
In order to be considered for ENGL110 exemption, a student must have taken a face-to-face college composition seminar or sequence of seminars on a college campus with a college instructor, and with undergraduate peer college writers. It is the policy of the Composition Program to deny dual or concurrent enrollment exemptions. Any writing course for which the student receives both college and high school credit will not be considered for exemption.
This policy also covers courses on UD's Matrix and the articulation agreements we have made with other institutions. Unless the course was taken with a college instructor and on the college campus listed on the Matrix, we will not consider exempting the student from ENGL110.
Effective January 1, 2019, the Composition Program will no longer consider exemption for courses taken before a student graduated from high school or earned a high school diploma.
