ENGL 1180 – Freshman Honors English
Qualifications – ACT of 27 or higher (composite)
SAT verbal of 650 or higher
Before a student is allowed to register for any honors courses, they must first be
accepted into the Snider Honors Program. All questions regarding the program and its
requirements should be sent to the Snider Honors Program Director.
A Transfer Evaluation (TE) will be prepared for students that have completed transfer
work. The TE will show the course name and number from the transfer institution, along
with the course equivalent from King University. Transfer courses with a grade of
C- or better are generally accepted for credits. King University will accept up to
the maximum of 88 s.h. from a recognized accredited institution.
If a student transfers to King with a degree, we generally accept that the student
has met the core requirements. Exceptions are Old and New Testament and any core
course specifically required by the major.
To meet core requirements, the student must have completed:
English Composition……………. 6 s.h.
English Literature………………....3 s.h.
Social Science……………………..6 s.h.
College Mathematics……………...3 s.h.
Natural Science w/lab……………..4 s.h.
A score of 3 on an Advanced Placement test waives the student from that course requirement
but does not give the student earned hours for the course. For this instance the student
may need to complete additional hours in electives. A score of 4 or 5 on a test will
waive the student from that course requirement and will give them the 4 s.h. of credit.
Yes. In order for a Transfer Evaluation to be adjusted, the chair of the related
department must compare the coursework and recommend that it be considered an equivalent.
The process will require the chair’s signature for the change to be made.
Traditional StudentsThe student will need to complete the “Authorization to Take Courses at Another College”
form. Authorization to take Courses at another College must be submitted prior to the start
of the semester that you plan to take the course. The form can be picked up in the Office of Registration and Records. King’s chair
of the related department signs the form if they approve the transfer. Both the student
and the advisor receive a copy of the form once approved.
Graduate & Professional Studies Students Authorization to take Courses at another College must be submitted prior to the start
of the semester that you plan to take the course. Forms that are received after the
start of the semester will be denied.
Please be sure to contact your Student Support Specialist prior to filling out an
Authorization form to verify that you are not retaking a course you previously transferred
in or taking a course that is already a part of your current program.
Submit the form to your Student Support Specialist. Complete the top portion (leave
the King University Equivalent section blank), and be sure to include your student
signature, mailing address and date.
A Course Description MUST accompany this form (this brief paragraph describing the course contents can be found
in the college's catalog, website or course syllabus).
Submit one form for each semester you plan to take classes. Be sure to submit your
form(s) IN ADVANCE to ensure that the course(s) will be approved PRIOR to enrolling
Anything over 16 s.h. is considered an overload and will require special permission. Students in the non-traditional programs are advised to not take more than two courses at one given time.
An overload cannot exceed 18 s.h. for non-traditional students. Student who take course at another institution also fall under the policy below.
Therefore, if they are taking 12 s.h. with King University they can only take an additional
6 hrs at another institution.
LIMITATION OF HOURS: Page 5 of the GPS Bulletin (2012-2013):
Full-time undergraduate students must take a minimum of 12 hours each semester; full-time
graduate students must take a minimum of 9 hours each semester. Exceptional undergraduate
students who have the permission of their advisors and the Provost may take up to
18 hours in a semester; exceptional graduate students who have the permission of their
advisors and the Provost may take up to 12 hours in a semester.
A traditional student will receive a degree audit once a completed “Declaration of
Major” form has been turned in to the Office of Registration and Records. Advisors
can assist the student with requirements of the intended major without the help of
the degree audit. Checklists are included in the catalogue for each major.
Ideally, majors/minors should be declared at the end of the student’s sophomore year
and no later than the first semester of their junior year. Declaration forms can be
obtained in The Office of Registration and Records.
To request an official King University transcript, please visit http://www.king.edu/registrar/transcript-request.aspx Transcript requests are typically processed within 3-5 business days, unless there
is a hold on the student’s account preventing release of information. An unofficial
copy of the student’s transcript is available via the student portal.
Please be aware that there are separate requests for students needing Sullins College
or Virginia Intermont transcripts. Those requests can be found on the King University
Registrar’s homepage http://www.king.edu/registrar/default.aspx
Verification of enrollment can be completed after the student has been officially
verified within the first ten days of the term. A student may request a Verification
of Enrollment request form by contacting the Office of Registration and Records.
Traditional Students Students may make changes to their schedule via the student portal up to the day
before the start of classes. After the start of the term, students must present to
the Office of Registration and Records for any schedule changes.
Graduate & Professional Studies StudentsStudents will need to contact their Student Success Specialist to make any changes
or alterations to their registration.
A passing grade (P) will be awarded if the student makes a C- or better in the class.
However, if the student’s final grade is a D+ or lower, they will be awarded an F.
For more information regarding the limitations of Pass/Fail, please refer to the catalog.
A Pass/Fail form must be completed in The Office of Registration and Records to change
the final grade to a P.
All grades earned will remain on the transcript for the term and be reflected in that
term GPA. If a student chooses to repeat a course at King, the better of the two grades
will count toward the student’s cumulative GPA. Restrictions and limitations for repeating
courses can be found in the catalogue.
Address changes can be made by contacting the Office of Registration and Records via
phone 423.652.6317, email email@example.com, or in person. A Change of Address form is required for all updates.
Name changes can be made through the student portal.

to graduate. The deadline for completing the application for May graduation is March 15; the deadline
for completing the application for December graduation is October 15. All financial obligations must be settled in full before the degree will be conferred.
