EAP Matters

Help Your Students Get Ready For College

CSUDH shares your commitment to supporting your students' success, and encouraging more high school students to attend university.

By August, students and high schools will receive the CAASPP EAP results. The results will indicate a student’s readiness for college-level English-language arts and mathematics. Students who receive a Standard Exceeded status are eligible to enroll in college-level courses at the CSU or a participating California Community College. Students who receive a Standard Met (conditional status) may clear their conditional status by completing a CSU EAP approved senior year experience (SYE). Students who do not intend to participate in a SYE must take the CSU Placement Test by the campus recommended date.

Student CAASPP EAP results will be shared with the CSU only for those students who gave permission to release the results to the CSU during the exam. Students who did not release their results, must contact each CSU to give permission for their CAASPP EAP results to be retrieved. It is the student's responsibility to do so or take the CSU Placement Test.

If you are a high school counselor, we encourage you to tell your 11th graders about Early Assessment Program (EAP) and the benefits of taking the EAP test.

Tell your students that taking the EAP will allow them to: 

  • Find out how prepared they are for university-level English and mathematics courses
  • Identify which subject areas they need to work on before attending university
  • Focus on building those skills during their senior year
  • Have the opportunity to be exempt from taking the EPT/ELM Placement Tests required by CSU campuses
