CSU Early Start Program
Welcome to Early Start at Chico State
The Early Start Program (ESP) is a CSU enrollment requirement for first-time freshmen who need help getting ready for college-level English and/or math. The goal of Early Start is to better prepare you in math and English before your first semester even begins so that you have a better chance of completing a college degree.
Details about Early Start requirements and classes for 2017 will be published in early spring.
