Get an Early Start on your SJSU Degree!

The CSU Early Start Program, the summer component of the Supportive Pathways program, gives students an opportunity to sharpen their mathematics and writing skills in the summer before the start of their freshman year. Early Start mathematics classes also give students an opportunity to complete their mathematics/quantitative reasoning requirement (Area B4) in the summer before or immediately after their freshman year. This year, Early Start is offering MATH 18A: College Algebra classes for students in STEM, Aviation, Business, Economics, and Packaging degree programs. We are currently accepting applications for Summer 2023.
