CSU Early Start

Notice (03/31/2020): Due to the impacts of COVID-19 on undergraduate admission for Fall 2020, the CSU will not host CSU Early Start in Summer 2020 in favor of other summer transitional programs in virtual formats (e.g., Summer Bridge, Westcott Courses/Omega Math).

What is CSU Early Start?

The CSU offers summer courses designed to help admitted first-year students improve their English and math skills before their first fall semester. Visit Academic Preparation for the full list of qualifiers.

Who participates?

California residents demonstrating need for additional development in English and/or math will participate in CSU Early Start. Review the multiple measures to determine whether or not you must participate. Non-residents and international students do not participate.

Are there alternatives?

Yes. While the CSU recommends completing CSU Early Start, you may select from available third-party course listings.
