Poly Placement Options: Directed Self-Placement

Welcome to Poly Placement Options. You have the opportunity to place yourself into the first-year composition course that best fits your skills through a process called "Directed Self Placement" (DSP) if you...

  • Scored a 147+ on your English Placement Test (EPT),
  • Earned a "2" in ESE 005,
  • or have gone through the Early Assessment Program (EAP).
DSP begins with you. You are familiar with your reading-and-writing background. You know what kind of learner you are: what motivates you, how much time you need to get work done, what level of challenge suits you. Please take the Poly Placement Option Survey to help you determine your placement.
