Conditionally Ready for College-Level Courses

Students may earn a Conditionally Ready status based on ACT, CAASPP EAP, or SAT test scores. Students must complete an approved senior year-long course with a grade of "C-" or better (both semesters) to clear the status. The same course must be taken the entire senior year.  The Conditionally Ready status will not be cleared until final official transcripts are reviewed and evaluated by Cal Poly Pomona's Office of Admissions.  

For students not clearing the Conditionally Ready status, you must participate in the CSU Early Start Program. Learn more here
