ENG 105 or 205?

Placement - English

If you've taken Composition classes (typically English 101 or 102) at another Arizona college and 1) earned a grade of C or higher in both and 2) and the courses are listed as equivalent within the Arizona state system transfer guide, you've satisfied the Composition requirement.

If you've taken a Composition class at college or dual enrollment elsewhere, you can request to substitute that prior coursework for English 105: See your Advisor.

If you have not taken the ACT or SAT, you'll need to take a placement exam through the W.A. Franke College of Business Testing Center.
