Get an Early Start on your SJSU Degree!

The CSU Early Start Program gives students an opportunity to sharpen their mathematics and writing skills in the summer before the start of their freshman year. Early Start mathematics classes also give students an opportunity to complete their mathematics/quantitative reasoning requirement (Area B4) in the summer before their freshman year. Admitted students are notified in the first week of May if Early Start classes are required or recommended.
