English/Writing AP Liaison is Donald Wolff (firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-962-3527).
AP Scores of 4-5 on either the Literature and Composition Test or the Language and Composition Test entitle the student to 10 Eastern lower division credits.
Four (4) credits are awarded for English 104.
Four (4) additional credits MAY be awarded for Writing 121 in one of two ways:
The portfolio should have a framing statement that effectively petitions Eastern’s English/Writing Program for WR 121 credit and that reflects upon the student’s composition experience and abilities through reference to the documents in the portfolio. The portfolio must also contain a letter of support from the student’s AP instructor that also guarantees that the work in the portfolio is the student’s own. The portfolio will be reviewed by at least two members of the English/Writing Program before credit is awarded. In some cases, credit for WR 121 may not be approved.
