Coyote First STEP/Early Start

Early Start is a program available to first time freshmen that need to complete additional math and/or English courses to achieve college level requirements. Classes are determined based upon the student’s EPT/ELM scores or equivalent (SAT, ACT, EAP) and completed during the summer prior to the fall quarter.

Coyote First STEP (CFS) is the fully residential summer experience for first time freshmen. Students will live on-campus in university housing for the duration of the program while they complete courses and engage in activities, which are designed to promote college success.

SSD provides services for students enrolled in Early Start and CFS. If you are interested in receiving services, the application for CFS is available under Applying for Services. Upon submission please indicate that you are participating in CFS/Early Start.
