Taking Early Start at Other CSUs

In order to ensure students are as prepared as well as possible for the specific ways math and English at taught at SF State, we strongly suggest completing your Early Start requirements here if possible.

Early Start English should ideally only be taken through SF State.  There are both in-person and online sections.  The course lasts four days total, so fits into most students' summer schedules.

Students who wish to take Early Start Math at other CSUs should complete our Early Start at Other CSU Google Form.  See the Early Start at other CSU tab for more info.
