Freshmen Competency Requirements
All students are required to demonstrate competency in basic
mathematics and standard written English. Incoming students who
exempt from the CSU Entry-Level Mathematics examination (ELM) and/or the
English Placement Test (EPT) because of national test scores or
college level courses must take these tests by the May test date
prior to attending SDSU or their admission to SDSU will be cancelled.
Those who fail one or both of these examinations are REQUIRED
to be enrolled in appropriate sections of General Mathematics and/or
Rhetoric and Writing Studies courses in the FIRST semester of enrollment.
Students who do not successfully remediate both the ELM and EPT
by the end of the third term, including summer term, of enrollment
are subject to disenrollment.
