The EPT and the ELM Placement Exams

Effective Fall 1998, Executive Order 665 requires all incoming freshman in the CSU take the English Placement Test (EPT) and the Entry Level Mathematics (ELM) test prior to enrollment in the CSU unless exempt by means scores earned on the ACT/SAT/EAP.  These are not admissions tests, but rather placement tools that will determine your eligibility to enroll in specific math and/or English courses.
