Other Options

There may be reasons why students cannot fulfill their Early Start requirement at a California State University or online.

Nevertheless, the purpose of Early Start is to better prepare students in English and Mathematics before they enter their freshman year of college. With an Early Start in these pivotal subjects, students will improve their chances not only to succeed in their first year but also to complete their college degree.

Students may fulfill the Early Start requirement at a California Community College, private institution or at an institution in other states. However, they must contact their future CSU campus prior to selecting one of these options. The future CSU campus must approve this choice. Students must remember to forward transcripts of their completed work to their future CSU campus when the courses are over.
