All entering first-time students are required to complete Write to Register (formerly known as Directed Self-Placement) before you can enroll in First-Year Composition classes at orientation. We recommend completing Write to Register two days before orientation. If you have transfer credit for First Year Composition due to Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, or college course credit, you do not need to complete Write to Register. If you are in Enrollment Category Four, you will complete Write to Register as part of your Early Start English (ESE) class. Please do not begin Write to Register before you enroll in ESE.
For more information about Write to Register, please see the SF State English Department website.
