Saint Leo requires two sequenced composition courses, English
121 and English 122, as part of the University Explorations
(general education) program. However, occasionally incoming
students need a bit more preparation in order to succeed in English
121. Your results will either place you in English 002, a course
that covers the basic skills related to grammar, punctuation, and
sentence and paragraph structure but does not count toward
University Explorations requirements; or English 121, which
reviews these skills and goes on to study various types of essays.
If you are placed in English 002 in your first semester, you will
then take English 121 in the following semester.
All Saint Leo University students are required to take a
mathematics class as a University Explorations (general
education) requirement. This requirement may vary depending on
the student’s major.
Based on your score, you will be placed in MAT 003, MAT
128/141, or MAT 151/201.
