The Early Start Program consists of math and English courses designed to provide support to students and ease the transition into their GE math and English courses in the fall. Placement is based on multiple measures of assessment (SAT, ACT, CAASPP EAP, AP and other high school academic information or exams) set forth by the CSU.
If you were placed into Category IV for English and/or math, the university will notify you of your requirement to participate in the Early Start Program in a separate email communication. In addition, if you were EAP conditional in math and/or English and did not complete an approved senior yearlong course, you are also required to participate in the Early Start Program. For additional questions, you may contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your Bronco ID number in your message so we can better assist you.
Per CSU Executive Order 1110, all students placed into Category IV must participate in the Early Start summer program. For help determining your placement, refer to our English and math pathfinder tools.
Participation in the Early Start Program is an enrollment requirement for the CSU. If you do not complete the Early Start requirement, you could be disenrolled from the university.
