End-of-Semester Placement for Advanced I and II Level (151-166)

Advanced English I and Advanced English II are the exit level and are graded according to the University's letter grade system. These classes will affect a student's undergraduate Grade Point Average (GPA). We expect students in these levels to leave (exit) the ELP after successfully completing either of these courses of study. Students will get letter grades (A, B, C, D, F) in the exit level classes.  Undergraduate students who get grades of A, B, or C pass the class and do not have to take more ELP classes in that skill.  Students who get a grade of D or F must retake the class. Graduate students should score a grade of B or higher on a special test (a 3.7 on Speaking is equal to a B) to remain in good standing with the Graduate School.
