Directed Self-Placement

Option 1: ENGLISH 108/109 Stretch 1 & 2


Students who choose “stretch” and enroll in English 108 in fall and English 109 in spring during their first year at CSUDH. English 108/109 is a year-long course that meets at the same day/time both terms. Students will have the same instructor and classmates in the spring semester as they had in the fall semester.


Option 2: English 110: First-Year Composition


English 110 is a good choice if the student is confident about their reading and writing ability and doesn’t think the extra time offered by the year-long stretch course is necessary or beneficial.
