Cal State L.A. Hosts 19th Biannual Search for Exceptional Academic Achievement

What & Who:
Cal State L.A.'s Early Entrance Program (EEP) will be holding the University's nineteenth biannual Search for Exceptional Academic Achievement, during which the Washington Pre-College Test (WPCT) is administered to highly gifted young students aged 11-15 1/2 interested in enrolling at Cal State L.A. or in taking university courses.

Sunday, April 22, 2001, 1-4:15 p.m.

Cal State L.A. King Hall classrooms. The University is located at the Eastern Avenue exit, San Bernardino (I-10) Freeway, at the interchange of the 10 and 710 Freeways. (Public permit dispenser parking available in Lots C and G or upper level of Parking Structure II.)

Cal State L.A.'s EEP-the only one of its kind in the nation-has grown steadily since its introduction on campus in 1983. Modeled after the program at the University of Washington, Seattle, the EEP admits extraordinarily gifted youngsters-some as young as 11-directly into college, providing the early entrants with monitored evaluation, regular counseling sessions, and the opportunity to study with like-minded peers.

The University's PACE (Pre-Accelerated College Enrollment) program is available for mentally gifted or talented ninth and tenth graders. Through the PACE program, eligible students enroll in selected regular college courses and receive college credit for them.
