Directed Self-Placement

Directed Self-Placement Survey  

The Directed Self-Placement Survey was open from June 4 through June 14, 2024.

We plan to open the Survey once more, from July 16 through July 24, 2024, for any students who did not yet complete. Please complete by that deadline.

The First-Year Seminar, which all incoming students take in the first year, builds writing and research skills but requires a certain level of writing readiness for success. To determine that readiness, all incoming students will complete and submit the Directed Self-Placement Survey. Each student will be placed into a Directed Self-Placement space in Canvas ( and will be able to access the survey there. Students will be notified through a course invitation email from, alerting them that they now have access to the Canvas Directed Self-Placement space.

Be sure to complete the survey before 11:59 pm on July 24, 2024.
