College Writing Requirement (3-6 Credits)

Unless exempted, all students must successfully complete a six-credit sequence in English composition (ENG 110-120). Every student should enroll in the appropriate English composition course each semester until ENG 120 is passed.

All entering freshmen and all transfer students who have not already done so must take the CUNY/A.C.T. Writing and Reading Assessment Tests prior to registering for their first semester at the College. Students will be placed in the appropriate composition course or English as a Second Language course. A student may be exempted from ENG 110 on the basis of an evaluation made by the English Department.

Students who enter Lehman College with transfer credit in English composition must consult the Department of English regarding their composition requirement. Except for holders of A.A., A.S., and A.A.S. degrees from CUNY or SUNY, transfer students may be required to take a placement exam. Eligible students should take the C.P.E. at special sessions prior to, or at the time of, their first registration at the College. Composition placement or exemption will be determined following the evaluation.
