Early Assessment Program (EAP)

The Early Assessment Program (EAP) is an academic preparation program to help high school students meet college readiness standards in English-language arts and mathematics before admission to a CSU campus or a participating California Community College.

Participating in the EAP

All students who take the CAASPP automatically participate in the EAP. The CAASPP is administered in the spring of the junior year
To send the CAASPP EAP status to CSU and CCC, students should select the option to release their EAP results to the CSU and participating California Community Colleges. This option will appear as the last question on the assessment. The results are not required or used for admissions. However, if students mark the “do not release” option, they will be required to submit the results at a later date.

Preparation is key!

Students who receive a "Ready" status are exempt from taking the required CSU English and math placement tests and the CSU Early Start Program. These students are ready to enroll directly in college level English and/or math courses upon enrolling at a CSU or a participating California Community College. Students who do not receive a "Ready" status must take a more serious approach to their senior year coursework. Completing appropriate 12th grade English and math courses will help students be better prepared for college level courses.
