Once your student is accepted into a CSU, he/she must take the Entry-level Mathematics Test (ELM) and the English Placement Test (EPT) unless they meet the exemption requirements. Please check the website of the CSU your student plans on attending to determine the deadline for taking the ELM and EPT.
