CSU Channel Islands considers multiple assessments in determining what English course a student will take in the fall and whether Early Start is REQUIRED or RECOMMENDED over the summer (before they enter their freshman year). Please refer to the Early Start Program section of your Freshman Enrollment Guide to determine whether an Early Start written communications course is required or recommended. The Guide was included in our offer of provisional admission packet - Fall 2019 - Freshman Enrollment Guide (1.3M, PDF).
