Upcoming Early Start Events

CSU Executive Order 1110 aims to address the inequities in college readiness and close gaps in degree completion. The new EO provides for the broadest use of multiple measures for improved placement of first-year students, recognizes the need for multiple math/quantitative reasoning pathways that can better align with student’s majors and career paths, and eliminates non-credit bearing remediation courses.  


Student Success Forum: Implementation of Executive Order 1110 – Changes to Developmental Education 

Please join us to discuss implementation of EO1110 and to learn more about math course redesign and placement of first year students.  We will have representatives from Math, English and Early Start. 

The forum is scheduled for Friday, March 9, 1-2:30 pm in the College of Business Auditorium (162-1001).
