About Us: The EOP has a 45 year history of improving access and retention of historically low-income and educationally disadvantaged students. EOP students have the potential and demonstrated motivation to perform satisfactorily at a CSU, but  may not have been able to realize their fullest potential because of economic or educational backgrounds.

icon reads: early start, everything you want to know
Early Start supports student success!  As policy across the CSU, Early Start requires incoming freshmen/first-year students who do not demonstrate readiness for college-level math and/or writing to begin remediation during the summer before enrolling in the CSU.

The goals of Early Start are to better prepare students in math and writing before their first semester and thereby improve their chances of completing a college degree.
