Directed Self-Placement


Dear Student,

Welcome to Marymount! You will make your course registration decisions using the following process called the Directed Self-Placement (DSP). Directed Self-Placement is available in two areas:

  • Reading
  • Writing (English Composition)
  • Mathematics< Assessment

First year students are required to complete the process in all areas and students MUST complete the Math Assessment before their academic advisor can register them for classes.

Important items to know before you start:

  • Log in using your Marymount username (abc12345) and password
  • Use only Internet Explorer or Firefox as your web browser
  • It will take about 30 minutes to complete the Reading and Writing portion
  • At any point during the reading or writing DSP process you can stop and log back in – the system will save your decisions
  • First year students have available:
    • High school GPA
    • High school class rank
    • SAT or ACT scores
Again, welcome to Marymount. We look forward to working with you!
