What Is the EAP?

Why wait until taking the EPT and ELM to find out what subjects you need to brush up on and which topics you already excel in? The Early Assessment Program (EAP) is designed to help high school juniors and seniors improve weak areas and polish strong ones by the time they begin taking classes at CSU.

Why It Works

The CSU has worked with the State Board of Education (SBE) and the California Department of Education (CDE) to develop the Early Assessment Program (EAP). The EAP incorporates the CSU’s placement standards into existing high school standards tests in English and mathematics.

Get in the Know

After you take the test, you will receive a score report that tells you whether you need additional preparation for college-level work or meet CSU's requirements for freshman math and English courses. Visit CSU's Success website for available tools to help you pinpoint your individual strengths and weaknesses. If you need more time to prepare, you have your entire senior year to do so.

EAP Duplicate Score Report Requests

The fee for the duplicate EAP report is $25. Credit/debit card is the only acceptable form of payment at this time. Mail the EAP Duplicate Score Report Request to ETS (contact information below). Allow two weeks for a response. Individuals will receive, via email, a letter on ETS letterhead verifying passage of the exam.
