Early Assessment Program

Get Ready for College!

CSU Pennants


The Early Assessment Program (EAP) is designed to provide students with an early signal of college academic preparation through California Assessments of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP/EAP) results. CAASPP/EAP scores are ONE of the multiple measures the CSU utilizes as an indicator of students’ readiness for college-level coursework in English and mathematics and for placement of first-time freshman in the appropriate General Education (GE) English and mathematics courses once they enroll at the CSU.

  • Scores may help identify critical classes taken during the first year in college.
  • Allow the student to learn how to make the most of the senior year in high school.

Let's get organized!
