Math & English Guided Self-Placement

Guided Self-Placement (GSP) is an activity that provides an opportunity to choose the course(s) most suitable for you since you are in the best position to evaluate your abilities and circumstances.

Before you begin...

Is the GSP right for you?

The guided self-placement activity is for students who:

  • are dual-enrolled in 9-11th grade in need of English placement, or
  • graduated high school before 2012, or
  • attended high school internationally, or
  • did not/will not complete high school

Did you graduate from a US high school within the last ten years? If so, you can use your high school records for placement into an English and math course instead.

Learn more about the GSP

To help inform your decision making, a Guided Self-Placement will provide you:

  • a review of course options/applicable areas of study
  • a preview of course content
  • an opportunity to practice/study course content
  • information about academic and support services available to you
  • an opportunity for self-reflection (content knowledge and life factors)
  • the opportunity to choose the course best suited for you
