Early Start Program

The Early Start Program (ESP) welcomes first-time freshman students to develop readiness for college-level English (A2) and Math (B4) in the summer prior to enrolling at a CSU. The goal is to increase the opportunity to complete their college degree. Based on the results of  Multiple Measures, students may be required or recommended to participate in the  CSU Early Start Program.

The following students are exempt from participating in the Early Start Program:

  • Students who met the multiple measures criteria for English and Math;
  • International students (F-1 and J-1 visas only);
  • Non-resident students who reside outside of California;
  • Students in the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) Summer Bridge Program.
