Directed Self-Placement


Welcome to Marymount! The Directed Self-Placement (DSP) will help you and your advisor work together to create a class schedule that is right for you. First you will be taking a portion of the DSP that is focused on English (Reading and Writing), then you will be taking a portion of the DSP that is focused on Math. Your academic advisor cannot register you for classes until you have completed both of these portions.

The DSP is designed to place you in the appropriate course levels to help you be successful at Marymount.

Important items to know before you start:

  • Log in using your Marymount username (abc12345) and password. This is the same username and password you created when you generated your student account on Marymount’s student account generator website. Please contact IT ( or 703-526-6990) if you are having any issues setting up your Marymount username and password.
  • Use only Internet Explorer or Firefox or Chrome as your web browser
  • It will take about 15 minutes to complete the English portion of the DSP.
  • After you complete the English portion, you will need to complete the Math portion of the DSP. There will be 42 math questions to answer.
Again, welcome to Marymount. We look forward to working with you!
