There are two courses in the composition sequence (EH 101 and EH 102) and there are three additional composition courses to accommodate students who require additional support and students who are best suited to an accelerated course. (See below for descriptions). In order to ensure the best opportunity for success, students are placed in a composition course based on ACT English or SAT Evidence-based Reading & Writing scores, and high school GPA. Students who are admitted to UAH without ACT or SAT scores and students admitted under the test score optional policy will be placed in EH 101S/101L. Students wishing to challenge their placement may opt to take the Composition Placement Test for entry into EH 101. Students may call Testing Services at 256.824.6725 to schedule an appointment to take the Composition Placement Test. This test may only be taken once. Students can also receive credit for EH 101 and/or EH 102 by taking the CLEP or International Baccalaureate exams. (Note: Students who have already completed EH 101 or a comparable course are not eligible to take the CLEP test for EH 102. CLEP tests must be taken in a student's first term).
