Early Start Program

The Early Start Program is intended to give incoming first-time, first-year students the opportunity to enroll in English and/or Mathematics/Quantitative Reasoning classes, with instructional support, prior to the term for which they have been admitted. This program is designed to better prepare students for the first semester of college and to help them improve their skills in English/Written Communication and/or Mathematics/Quantitative Reasoning.

The Early Start Program takes place the summer before your first year and courses will be available at all CSU campuses with additional options to take courses online. Financial aid will be available for those who have demonstrated need (see below for details).
