Early Start used at California universities to prepare incoming freshmen

A recent article featured on EdSource discusses the Early Start program at California State University. The program, now in its second year, is required for students who are considered underprepared for college-level math and English coursework.  Students participate in the program during the summer before starting their first semester, allowing students to focus on degree- or certificate-specific coursework once they begin college.  The program has been implemented across CSU’s 23 campuses where it is estimated that nearly half of incoming freshman require developmental education.
