Juniors:  What is The Early Assessment Program EAP?

The CSU Success Program helps students improve their English and math skills in preparation for the Early Assessment Program (EAP) exam to test college readiness.   The EAP is an optional exam that students took during their junior  year and which can help students find out early if they are on track for being ready for freshman college-level English and math.  Seniors are now able to see their results on the same paperwork that was sent home to show the CST results, as well as online.  Reviewing the results will help you find out what steps are needed to prepare for college-level English and math courses.
