Early Start Program Special Requests

Making a Special Request

Students required to participate in the Early Start Program or Coyote First STEP who have a family, employment, medical, faith, travel or other conflicting obligations may submit a Special Request form. The Student Services Committee reviews requests on a case-by-case basis. The committee reviews requests weekly so students must plan for at least 5 - 8 business days for a decision. Notifications are sent to CSUSB student email account. All requests must include supporting documentation for example; work schedules or non-refundable travel itineraries.

Please submit your request by July 19th so you request can be reviewed before move-in day on July 29th. If you submit your request after July 19th, you request may not be reviewed before move-in day.

Please be aware that campus is closed on Fridays from June 22nd through August 31st. Fridays are not considered a business day. 
Special Requests may include:

  • I request to leave campus for work/other activity during the Coyote First STEP program hours.
  • I request to live off campus during the required 2 week residential part of the program (July 29 - August 8).
  • I request to live on campus during the weekend of August 3 - August 5.
