Early Start Program, Summer 2015

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 for such incoming students.

Important: Failure to enroll for the Summer Quarter of 2015 may result in disenrollment for students who do not have an approved exemption on file by August 1, 2015. Students who fail to enroll and do not have an approved exemption on file will not be able to register for any courses for Fall Quarter 2015.

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. You may read the full CSU Policy on Remediation, by clicking on the following link: EO1048
