EPT and ELM Test Information

About the California State University Placement Tests

The California State University (CSU) has made sweeping changes to their developmental education policy for admitted students. As a result, beginning October 1, 2017, the English Placement Test (EPT) and Entry-Level Mathematics Exam (ELM) will no longer be offered.

The CSU policy changes include:

  • expanded use of multiple measures for course placement in the first year
  • the elimination of non-credit bearing prerequisite courses
  • strengthening the Early Start Program
