Welcome, Incoming Students!

Once you enroll at CI, one of the important decisions you have to make is how to complete your first year writing requirement. At our campus, we ask you to assess your own readiness for college level writing and research and decide for yourself whether to begin with our 3-unit stretch composition course (English 102) or jump right into our three-unit accelerated course (English 105). We call our program Directed Self Placement, or DSP for short.

Please explore this site and submit any questions you might have via our form. See you soon!
