Important: If your Early Start Program Page indicates that you are required to participate in BOTH Math and English/Written Communication, you may "Opt Out" of English by selecting the opt out button. If that is unavailable email the Admissions office, please include your name and Chico State student ID.

If you have a disability and require accommodations for completing your Early Start class(es) at Chico State, contact the Accessibility Resource Center as soon as you register.

Drop a Class

If you need to drop a class, you must do so in the Student Center prior to the registration & payment deadline.
