Welcome to Early Start

Early Start Update - June 6, 2018

Early Start registration is now open for students who are required to attend the program. "Early Start Recommended" (Category 3 or 3C) students should receive the "Enroll in Early Start" link no later than June 7.

As of June 6, all students enrolling in Early Start must pay fees within 24 hours of registration, or they will be disenrolled. Students with Early Start fee waivers will not be charged fees when registering.

Students can check their placement categories and fee waiver eligibility on the Early Start page in the MyFresnoState Student Center under My Admissions and Program Applications. Click here for directions.
