Update on status of ENG 125

As you advise students for Summer 2019 and Fall 2019 courses, please be aware that ENG 125 is currently being phased out at NOVA.


Summer 2019 is the final semester that it will be offered for general enrollment; after that, there will be very limited offerings of ENG 125 in Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 for students who have previously taken the course and would like to retake it.

Previously, students who planned to transfer to GMU were advised to take ENG 125.

GMU will continue to accept ENG 125 transfer class until 2025 for students who completed it before the spring of 2020.


Moving forward, it is best to advise students to enroll in ENG 112. The college is working on updating the various pathways online to reflect this change.
