Pre College Programs
The Early Assessment Program (EAP) is a joint effort of the CSU, the California Department of Education, and the State Board of Education to smooth the transition from K-12 to higher education and to prepare students early to succeed in college. EAP provides an early signal to high school officials, students, and families as to whether the 11th grader will be exempt from taking the English and mathematics placement tests upon admission to a CSU campus.
We are glad that you have chosen Cal Poly Pomona to pursue your college education. You have most likely been directed to this page, because you have been identified as not having satisfied proficiency requirements in English and /or Mathematics. Incoming freshmen who demonstrate a remedial need in English and/or mathematics must begin remediation in the summer (CSU Policy on remediation - EO 665). Participation in the Early Start program is mandatory. Failure to enroll 2014 can result in disenrollment for students who do not have an exemption. You will not be able to register for any course(s) Fall 2014. CPP has created a program of summer offerings to ensure that you are not only in compliance with the Chancellor's mandate but that you are also making progress with your preparatory classes.
Cal Poly Pomona has the distinction of having four Upward Bound Programs, two traditional and two math/science, serving a total of five local high schools. Upward Bound provides opportunities for participants to succeed in high school and enter college. Upward Bound serves low-income, first generation high school students. The goal of Upward Bound is to help these students complete high school and enroll in and graduate from college.
