Program Description

The Early Start Program was mandated by the CSU Board of Trustees as a response to the high rate of students who are not college ready prior to their first quarter at a university. The Early Start program requires incoming students who do not demonstrate readiness for college-level math and/or English to begin developmental coursework during the summer before coming to the CSU. Failure to enroll in the required Early Start course(s) may result in cancellation or non-enrollment for fall semester.
