Why is Early Assessment Important?

Like all colleges and universities, the CSU wants to make sure that incoming first year students are prepared to succeed. Students who complete general education math and written communication courses during their first year save time and money and are twice as likely to graduate as those who don't.

Giving students an indicator of their preparation level during their junior year of high school allows them to focus on critical skills before they arrive on the CSU campus for their first semester. 

The Early Assessment Program and CAASPP exam results have no impact on the admissions process. These results are used to place students in appropriate writing and math courses during their first year of college AFTER they are admitted.
