Cal State (CSU) information
- The CSU no longer uses ACT or SAT examinations in determining admission eligibility for all CSU campuses.
- If accepted to a CSU campus, ACT or SAT test scores can be used as one of the measures to place students in the appropriate mathematics or English (written communication) courses.
- For more information on admission criteria, please visit the First-Time Freshman Guidance and the First-Time Freshman Frequently Asked Questions pages.
Students in need of additional academic development are supported in the Early Start Program (ESP) and in enhanced baccalaureate courses. The goal of Early Start is to provide academic support to students in English and math/quantitative reasoning.
