Early Start Program & Coyote First STEP

Early Start Program

The Early Start Program serves CSU admitted first - time freshman requiring skills development in written communication and/or mathematics/quantitative reasoning. The goals of Early Start are to better prepare students in written communication and math/quantitative reasoning before their first term, thereby improving their chances of successful completion of a baccalaureate degree in a timely manner.

Due to disruptions in instruction in public and private high schools and in standardized testing, the CSU has suspended the Early Start Program requirement for summer 2020.
