The Early Start Program: What is it?

The Early Start Program is a tool used across the California State University system to prepare incoming freshmen for college-level English and Math courses. The goals of the Early Start Program include better preparation of students to begin college by beginning their mathematics and English in the summer. The program was approved by the CSU Board of Trustees and launched at all CSU campuses in 2012.
