If the school to which you are applying has asked about your 2nd English class and you are registered with the HPO, send us an email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) with your full name, RUID#, and the class name and number which you feel satisfies your 2nd English requirement.  As soon as we are able to verify that the class appears on your schools English requirement list, we will provide you a letter officially verifying completion of a 2nd English class.  It is important that you include the course title/number because the HPO administrative staff are not in a position to guess which classes satisfy that requirement.  If you need help identifying a class, you should make an appointment to meet with an advisor or a dean.
