Early Start


Welcome Broncos! We are glad that you have made the choice to pursue your college education with Cal Poly Pomona.

The goal of the Early Start Program is to better prepare students in math and/or English before their first semester, thereby improving their chances of completing a college degree.

Who Should Participate?

Per Executive Order 1110, the Early Start Program serves CSU admitted freshmen who have not demonstrated proficiency in written communication and/or mathematics/quantitative reasoning as determined by the systemwide placement standards

Newly admitted freshmen who are required or recommended to participate in Early Start will be notified in a separate email communication the 2nd week of April.
