Choice of Studies Process

Course selection for incoming 9th graders opens on May 1, 2020 and requests are by due May 10, 2020. If you submit your course requests by this deadline we guarantee you will be able to take the level of core content you requested. Electives are not guaranteed since we give upperclassmen first choice on these classes.

If we receive your course requests after the May 10 deadline we will do everything we can to accommodate the level of core content you have requested, but we cannot guarantee availability.


  • DPS Student ID Number (if you are new to DPS and don’t know your number yet, don’t worry! We will still be able to process your course requests)
