General Education Requirements

For some majors, certain courses may count toward both General Education and Major requirements. Some courses have prerequisites. As noted above, course substitutions are not allowed. Ask your advisor for assistance in selecting appropriate courses.

I. Communication Skills: 6 Sem. Hrs.


  • A full‑time student must enroll in ENG 1050 , Composition I, immediately and must earn a “C” (2.0) grade or better before enrolling in ENG 1060 , Composition II. A student must remain continuously enrolled in ENG 1050  and ENG 1060  until he or she has earned a “C” (2.0) grade or better in ENG 1060 .

    All entering freshmen and all freshmen transfers must complete the ENG 1050  and ENG 1060  sequence successfully before they earn a total of 60 credit hours. All students who transfer with 30 credits or more must complete ENG 1060  during their first 30 semester hours at UNCP. Students who have not completed their composition courses at the end of the allotted time will no longer be permitted to register for 3000 or 4000 level courses. If they attempt to do so, the registrar’s office will cancel their registration and require them to register only for courses below the 3000 level until they receive a “C” (2.0) in ENG 1060 . (The Enrollment Management Subcommittee of the Faculty Senate, or in emergencies the Assistant Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, will consider exceptional cases.)
