Remediation/Early Start Page

Incoming freshmen will have access to the Remediation/Early Start Page (also referred as the Smart Page in some references). The page includes three sections: English, Math, and Financial Aid Information.

To access your Remediation/Early Start Page:

  1. Log into MyFresnoState.
  2. Click on "Student Center."
  3. Click on "My Admissions and Program Applications" (the second green arrow).
  4. Click on "Remediation/Early Start."

Below is an example of the Remediation/Early Start Page:


A video tutorial for the Remediation/Early Start page can be found here.

English and Math Statuses

Your remediation and Early Start statuses will be based on test scores and course grades that have been submitted to Fresno State. If you are exempt from Early Start or remediation, your page will reflect this. See the Exemptions page for more details.

If you believe that a test score or grade should exempt you from Early Start or remediation, but is not reflected on this page, contact Ricardo Andrade to find out if the information was received. New ELM and EPT test scores may take a few days to be added to your page.  It is your responsibility to ensure that all other transcripts and test scores reach Fresno State. 

Selecting a Different Campus

By default, your Early Start school will be "California State University, Fresno" if you are attending Fresno State in the fall. If you would like to complete Early Start at another school, you need to change the listed school for each subject that you choose to take at another campus. You may select different schools for English and Math if you would like.

Once you change your schools, click "Confirm" to finalize your choice(s). You should be contacted by your new Early Start campus within a few business days. Check your Fresno State Mail account for an email confirmation. 

Financial Aid Information

The "Financial Aid Information" box will tell you if you qualify for a waiver of your Early Start tuition-fees and student fees. If you have submitted a FAFSA and meet a specific estimated family contribution (EFT), you will be eligible for a fee waiver of tuition-fees and student fees for the Early Start Program. This fee waiver does not cover ESM 3 textbooks, parking expenses, or course supplies (e.g. paper, pens, printing).
