English Proficiency Examination (EPE)


    • Students must register for the EPE, ENGL 001, concurrently with ENGL 102:  Basic Composition II.  
    • Transfer students with credit for ENGL 102 should register for the EPE, ENGL 001, the first semester at UMES.  It is very important for students to fulfill this requirement as early as possible in their college careers.
    • ENGL 001, the EPE, is a prerequisite for ENGL 203, ENGL 305, and ENGL 310.
    • All students registered for the EPE are in a Blackboard class, where the information below and additional information is available.
    • Tutoring for the EPE, for students who have previously failed it, is offered through the Writing Center.
