What is Retroactive Credit?
Students who take the English Placement & Proficiency Exam (EPPE) and place into an English class above Composition I (ENGL 1150 or 1154) may be eligible for retroactive credit for the UNO courses they test out of. This means that you can receive the academic credits for the courses you were able to skip by placing forward in the required courses. You don't have to pay for these credits, and they will show up on your transcript as if you took the courses.
Students can apply for retroactive credit for ENGL-1150 (with a grade of CR) if they meet both of the following conditions:
- Place into the 1160 (Composition II) level on the EPPE or present a score of 4 on the Advanced Placement (AP) examination taken on or after August 25, 2008 (either Language and Composition or Literature and Composition exams)
- Take and successfully pass (with a C- or better) ENGL 1160 or ENGL 1164 at UNO
Students can apply for retroactive credit for ENGL-1150 and ENGL-1160 (with grades of CR) if they meet both of the following conditions:
- Place into the 2000 level on the EPPE or present a score of 5 on the Advanced Placement (AP) examination taken on or after August 25, 2008 (either Language and Composition or Literature andomposition exams)
- Take and successfully pass (with a C- or better) an approved "third writing course" at UNO
