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)

First year students are required to complete the process in both areas.

Important items to know before you start:

  • Use only Internet Explorer or Firefox as your web browser
  • It will take about 30 minutes to complete the entire process
  • 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!
