Executive Order 1110

On August 2, the CSU Chancellor’s Office issued Executive Order 1110, which provides policy changes to the way we serve incoming students. This Executive Order links directly to the Graduation Initiative 2025’s priority of improving academic preparation.

Effective fall 2018, EO 1110 revises the policy for first-year student placement in English and mathematics/quantitative reasoning courses, retires the CSU assessment exams used for course placement, and modifies the Early Start Program. In addition, it eliminates the use of developmental education prerequisites and calls for alternative instructional models to support students in credit-bearing courses.

We have a number of faculty/administrator work groups formed to implement EO 1110 by next fall.

If you are currently teaching or advising students, or will be teaching or advising students for spring 2018, regarding Math 10, 20, 30 and/or GEW 050, please continue doing so.

You are invited to read the message to first-year students that will be sent later today as well as the message to our K-12 community partners that will be distributed shortly on the Office of Undergraduate Studies' EO 1110 website.

I will provide clarifying information as it is available. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at dformo@csusm.edu.

Dean of Undergraduate Studies
