Students placed into English 102 will receive credit for English 101 once they have completed English 102.  Students who are exempt, will receive credit for both English 101 and 102 after completion of their first semester.  Credit given for English 101 and 102 comes with a grade of P (pass) and does not affect the student's GPA.  Transfer credit is awarded for CEEB AP exam scores and institutional credit is awarded for sufficient ACT, SAT, and COMPASS scores.
