Summer Course Offerings

During the summer 2014 students who are required to remediate in English will only be allowed to register for an Early Start English (ESE 05) 1.5 unit course at Cal Poly Pomona. Students who are required to remediate in math will have the option to enroll in either a (4 or 1.5 unit) course. If you are unable to participate in a 4 unit math course, at a minimum you must register for the 1.5 unit course listed as Early Start Mathematics (ESM 05).

IMPORTANT: While Early Start Mathematics (ESM 05) does meet the Chancellor's mandate of beginning remediation in the summer, this course does not allow you to progress to the next level or remediation.

Cal Poly Pomona offers several math and/or English summer sessions during the 10 week quarter. The below chart identifies the sessions lengths and dates.
