COLLEGE CLASSES WHILE IN HIGH SCHOOL
Interested in taking college classes while in high school?
What's the difference?
Your participation in EAP may help you avoid taking the CSU-required Placement Tests, to find out if you need extra preparation for college-level courses, and to help you adjust your senior year classes so you can be prepared for college-level courses. It also helps avoid wasting your time and money in college remediation classes that do not count towards a baccalaureate degree.
Take your CAASP test seriously, and do your best! For more information regarding EAP and placement into CSU Math and English classes go here.
