Early Assessment Program (EAP): http://calstate.edu/eap/
•The EAP tests are an optional part of the 11th grade STAR test that
you need to take.
•Your EAP results let you and CSUs know if you will be ready for
college level Math and English. It determines if you need to take
extra English and Math courses prior to starting at the CSU.
•Students who do not take the EAP test might end up having to
take extra English and Math classes the summer before they enter
the CSU as well as extra classes at the CSU that they could have
taken during their 12th grade year at Irvington.
Make sure to check the box on your STAR test that releases your EAP results
to the CSUs.
