Early Start at Chico State

Printer-friendly version

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 for your first semester so that you have a better chance of completing a college degree.

Early Start 2018

For fall 2018 incoming freshmen students, the CSU is making changes to how it will determine placement for general education English and math courses and who will be exempt from the Early Start remediation program. The Chico State Admissions Office website will publish information about placement methods as it becomes available.
