Early Assessment Program (EAP)

While still in their junior year of high school, students who are seeking admission to the CSU should participate in the Early Assessment Program. EAP is a collaborative effort among the California State Board of Education, the California Department of Education and the California State University. The program was established to provide opportunities for students to measure their readiness for college-level English and mathematics, and to facilitate opportunities for them to improve their skills during their senior year of high school. More information about EAP is available from the CSU Chancellor's Office as well as how to determine a student's math and English status based on EAP results.

Early Start Program (ESP)

If a student took the EAP, SAT, or ACT in high school, then his or her results could make the student a candidate for our Early Start Program (ESP) as a final attempt to provide readiness for entry into CSU English and/or mathematics courses before beginning courses at the CSU. ESP is a program to be completed in the summer after graduation from high school and prior to taking courses at the CSU campus the student has been admitted to.
