Welcome to the
Early Entrance Program Web Site
The Early Entrance Program (EEP) at Cal State L.A. Â– one of the few opportunities
for accelerated education nationwide Â– is unique for several reasons.
The program accepts students as young as 11 years of age and features a large population
of other gifted students. "EEPsters," as they are known, attend regular college
classes on campus, where an all-important support system is in place for them.
EEPsters begin full-time study upon acceptance and earn their baccalaureate within
four to five years.
A suite of rooms Â– including a kitchen, study room, computer room and social areas Â– are
available for the students' exclusive use. Adjacent are the office of the director,
counselor, and staff, ever ready to lend a hand or ear.
Cal State L.A. provides many advantages as a site for an Early Entrance Program.
Occupying a 175-acre hilltop facing the San Gabriel Mountains, it is only five miles
from downtown Los Angeles. The University offers more than 80 major programs in 50 academic
departments, enabling undergraduates to lay the groundwork for a variety of careers.
Small classes and access to faculty members dedicated to teaching excellence make
the education process personal and rewarding. Research opportunities abound, offering
valuable experience and preparation for graduate work.
