Early Start Program

About the Early Start Program

The Early Start Program was mandated by the CSU Board of Trustees in response to the number of new students requiring remediation in mathematics and English. The goals of the Early Start Program include better preparation of new students in mathematics and English by starting in the summer preceding their first fall semester, provide better assessment of academic preparation and improve students' likelihood of a successful completion of a college degree.
