If you are planning to apply to any one of the 23 Cal State campuses, you will need to take a college placement test called the EPT (English Placement Test) and the ELM (Entry Level Math) test. 


The EPT and ELM makes up the CSU Early Assessment Program (EAP) and is designed to let you know if you are prepared for college math and English.  Go to this link for more information:


Prepare for College

Warning: Failure to meet the EAP requirement costs time and money

  • You cannot enroll in for-credit CSU college English and/or Math classes until you meet the requirements.
  • You must spend time taking remedial English and/or Math classes during your freshman year until you meet the requirements.
  • You will graduate later because you get no degree credit for remedial English and/or Math classes.
  • You may have to pay additional charges for the remedial classes.
  • If you do not pass the remedial classes by the end of your first year, you may be disenrolled from the university.
