How will my classes be selected?
First-year students registering in the fall: We use a process called Directed Self-Placement (DSP, for short) to help students choose the best courses for them. DSP asks students to reflect on their unique background, experience, and preparation for college-level work and then place themselves in the English and mathematics courses that seem most appropriate. Students will also have an opportunity to let us know some of their other interests and scheduling concerns. At SOS, students will review their schedule with an advisor and be able to make changes at that time.
