English Placement

Undergraduate students are automatically assigned an English placement by the university. Students are assigned fall or spring semester in which to take ENG 1510, Writing and Rhetoric I.

ENG 1510 is required for all Ohio University bachelor's degrees. There is no placement test for English.

Students with external credit can transfer the credit to Ohio University by submitting an official transcript to the Office of Admissions. To learn more the process of transferring external credits, including AP scores, please visit our External Credit page.

First-year students will be given additional information about the English Exemption Exam during the first  week of their ENG 1510 course. This information is provided by the instructors, and additional information is available on the English Department's website.
