Early Start Program Dates and Registration

Registering for an Early Start Class

Step 1: Students admitted to a CSU campus who are required to complete Early Start will be contacted by their home campus with instructions on how to designate where their Early Start course will be completed. If you plan to attend Cal State East Bay, these instructions will be emailed to you.

Step 2: If you choose to take the class at Cal State East Bay you will be to register for your preferred course date/time and submit your course fee payment immediately. If you choose to complete the requirement at another CSU, you must wait to be contacted (via horizon email) by that campus.  If you do not hear from your selected campus within one week, you should contact that campus directly.
