Early Start Program Page

The Early Start program page provides information on English and Mathematics readiness, based on the information available to Fresno State Admissions at that time. Statuses are updated as new information is received.

Students who are Early Start Required for both English and Mathematics (category W4 and M4) have the option of opting out of one of the two subjects by checking the "Opt Out" box and confirming the selection.

If a student is required to take Early Start, they will also see a "Financial Aid Information" box containing information about their Early Start program fee waiver eligibility.

To access the Early Start page:

  1. Go to the "Student Center"
  2. Click "My Academic Records & Registration"
  3. Click "Early Start"

The Early Start program page also includes a link to register for classes.
