Prerequisite Advising Support Services (PASS)
In preparation for your SOAR session as a new Fall 2019 student to CSULB, and ensure the most accurate placement for your fall semester, the Directed Self-Placement or DSP assessment will provide you with a series of questions to determine what English courses you should take in the fall. If you received the notification regarding DSP, please complete the Directed Self-Placement Survey. Once completed, you will receive the results informing you what courses you should plan to complete in the fall.
Make sure to complete the survey before you attend SOAR this summer so you may review your results with your SOAR advisor.
