Early Start Classes and Your Orientation Options
How does the Early Start Program affect my Orientation options?
Since Early Start status is based on ELM and EPT tests scores, then 1st tip is to test early! Do not wait until May to test!
Orientation attendees must have test scores on file. So February or March testing assures you will have test scores in April and can make decisions about Early Start.
Orientation attendees must comply with Early Start!
Early Start English
For English, if you score 137 and below and need Early Start. You must take SF State’s 1-unit course, called ESE 99.
If ESE 99 is completed, you can attend an orientation directly after that.
If ESE 99 is not yet taken, you cannot come to an orientation and get classes!
If you live in Southern California and want to go to our Southern California dates, you must enroll and complete the ESE 99 class which starts in early June.
If you have any reasons to not have to test on EPT or do Early Start, contact us to get help.

Early Start Math
math courses, whenever you attend orientation, you must bring proof of
enrollment and payment in an upcoming or ongoing summer remedial math.
Since math courses take weeks to complete, you may register for classes
at orientation without finishing the class entirely.
If you have no proof of registration and payment for a summer remedial math, you may not attend an orientation, and will be turned away at check in.
Good news about Early Start classes!
will honor your math class if you have it in progress by allowing you
to “bump” up to the next remedial math level. But you have to bring
proof of being in the class, we will need to have a final grade in
Early Start English allows you to select the correct level of English to take in fall semester. Thus by finishing ESE 99 you will be able at orientation to take the English class you chose.
