Summer Transition to ECST Program (STEP)
California State University, Los Angeles College of Engineering, Computer Science, & Technology Student Academic Support Services, E&T Building, Room A-127 5151 State University Drive Los Angeles, CA 90032 (323) 343-4574
The purpose of STEP is to prepare incoming freshman students for the transition from high school to the College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology (ECST) at California State University, Los Angeles. Inadequate preparation in pre-requisite courses such as mathematics inhibits engineering students from pursuing and achieving their academic goals. STEP focuses on reinforcing and developing math skills necessary for lower division major requirements and helping them acclimate to the campus before the start of their first quarter. Students have the opportunity to meet other students pursuing their major, connect with ECST student organizations and faculty, receive general information about the campus, financial aid, academic advisement, and participate in key personal development workshops to help them become more evolved and effective in their academic and personal lives. STEP will fulfill the CSU Early Start Mathematics Program requirement. Students who participate in STEP are exempt from attending the Early Start Program.
PROGRAM DATES, TIME, AND LOCATION
Date: July 7 - August 27, 2014 Time: 9:00 a.m - 3:00 p.m. (Monday - Friday) Location: Cal State L.A.
IS STEP MANDATORY?
STEP 2014 is MANDATORY for ALL incoming freshmen in the College of ECST whose ELM score places them in Math 89, 90, 91, or Math 104A. Students that are exempt from the ELM will automatically start in Math 104A which would require them to come to STEP. Although the University does not consider Math 104A remedial, it is two math levels below the desired starting point for engineering and computer science majors. If your ELM score places you in Math 104A, you must attend STEP.
You are required to attend a STEP Orientation on Saturday, JUNE 28, 2014 FROM 9:00AM - 2:30PM AT CAL STATE L.A. (Golden Eagle Ballroom). More information is forthcoming. Please make sure to mark your calendar for the STEP Orientation and check your email and voicemail on a regular basis for updates.
REQUIRED CSU PLACEMENT TESTS: ELM AND EPT
ALL INCOMING FRESHMEN STUDENTS MUST HAVE TESTED ON OR BEFORE MARCH 15, 2014 IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN STEP. In order to place you in the appropriate math class for STEP, it is necessary to have your ELM scores available. If you were exempt from the ELM and will not take the AP Calculus Exam, you are required to attend STEP. The only way that you will be exempt from STEP is if you take the AP Calculus Exam and obtain a score of 3 or higher.
