Students identified for Hampton University Advanced Placement in English will be placed in ENG 102 Honors. The freshman must complete the course during the semester of placement with a grade of "C" or better to be eligible for the advanced placement credit of three (3) credit hours for ENG 101. If the freshman does not satisfactorily complete ENG 102, no credit will be awarded by the University for the lower level course.

Any student wishing to receive advanced placement for English must first submit SAT scores reflecting a grade of 580 or higher in Verbal or ACT scores reflecting 25 or higher for reading. The student must then enroll in ENG 102 and earn a grade of C or better to receive credit for ENG 101.

Please note the Office of Testing Services does not evaluate Advanced Placement scores. Please refer to the Office of the Registrar for this information.
