CLC English Placement

Students who plan to enroll in credit-bearing classes at CLC are required to meet basic proficiencies before they can register for classes. Students may demonstrate that they meet College Reading and Writing Readiness (CRWR) in other ways. If a student does not meet CRWR through these measures, they can follow Directed Self Placement (DSP) for English course placement.

If a student chooses to participate in Directed Self Placement, follow these steps:

  1. Complete the DSP questionnaire. The process should take about 15 minutes. Refer to the FAQs for more details.
  2. Once the DSP is complete, you will know which English course to enroll in. If you are a new student, you can discuss your academic plan and the registration process with your college and career navigator. If you are a current student, you can discuss your academic plan and the registration process with your academic success advisor.
