Early Assessment Program



We thank our High School and Community partners for helping students prepare to pursue their education at Cal Poly Pomona. CPP’s EAP supports early academic preparation in our local admissions area. High Schools within the local admissions area may contact us to request a member of our team to schedule a CSU Academic Preparation Presentation or participate in a district meeting.

Cal Poly Pomona has implemented a new multifactor admissions (MFA) evaluation process for Fall 2021 to evaluate First-Time Freshmen applicants for CSU minimum requirements and additional impaction requirements. The new MFA process excludes ACT/SAT scores and instead relies on both academic and non-academic student variables when evaluating an applicant’s admissibility.
