Early Start Program, Summer 2016

A Message from the Office of Academic Programs


We are glad that you have chosen to pursue your college education with Cal Poly Pomona.

You have most likely been directed to the Early Start Program page because you have been identified as not having satisfied the proficiency requirements in English and /or Mathematics. Per the requirements of CSU Executive Order 1048, participation in the Early Start program is mandatory.

Important Notice: Students who fail to enroll for their Early Start Program courses during the Summer quarter of 2016  will be unable to enroll in any Fall 2016 courses.

EO1048 is an Executive Order issued by the Chancellor’s Office of the California State University System requiring Early Start or "summer school" for incoming freshman students who do not demonstrate readiness for college level Math and/or English courses.
