EN 111 Conditional Waiver Process

The English Department grants a waiver without credit of the EN 111 requirement provided the Director of Composition agrees and the following conditions are met:

  1. The student enrolls in EN 111 in the following semester if he or she fails to complete EN 211 with a grade of C or better.
  2. Upon completion of one EN 211, the student takes a second EN 211 course (but not the same one*) or one of the upper division writing courses listed below to satisfy the 8-credit hour composition requirement.

*  the same EN 211 may not be counted twice

Upper Division Writing courses:

EN 215 Intro to Creative Writing
EN 217 Newspaper Writing and Reporting
EN 300 Creative Writing: Fiction
EN 301 Creative Writing: Poetry
EN 302 Nonfiction Writing
EN 303 Technical & Prof Writing
EN 309 Teaching of Writing
EN 400 Narrative Writing Seminar
EN 401 Poetry Writing Seminar
EN 402 Nonfiction Writing Seminar
EN 403 Drama & Script Writing Seminar
EN 405 Technical Writing Seminar
EN 407 Feature & Magazine Writing

Enrollment in any of these courses is subject to the prerequisites stated in NMU’s Bulletin.

Note: Subsequent evaluation of a student’s transcripts may result in the award of credit for EN 111. If so, this agreement will be superseded by the award of credit.

To start this process, contact the English Department's director of composition, Laura Soldner at 906-227-2672 or lsoldner@nmu.edu.
