Entry Level Math (ELM) Exam
Newly admitted CSU freshmen students not meeting the ELM requirement by any other means must pass the ELM examination to show that they are ready for college-level course work.
This examination is not an admissions test, but rather an instrument for determining who may enroll in certain general education courses that are required for graduation.
Preparing for the ELM Exam
If you haven't met the ELM requirement by other means after being admitted to the CSU, you must take the exam before you can register for classes.
1. Access the online exam prep tools and begin preparing for the exam immediately.
2. Passing this exam is your last chance to avoid having to enroll in remedial math courses. Prepare seriously.
3. Learn from other students’ experience.
