* UM guidelines are subject to change before the academic year.

** A maximum of 12 hours can be earned for combined Language and Literature exams and dual enrolled credit. 

Please note: Students who receive credit for ENG 210 because of their AP score can still take ENG 210 at UM, because this is a course that can be repeated when the course topic differs, and none of the course topics for sections of ENG 210 is the same as the AP literature curriculum. Also, ENG 210 credit awarded because of AP scores can be used toward the Introduction to Literature cognate, which includes ENG 210 among the courses in the second option group.
