Supportive Pathways for First-Year Students

The goal of the Supportive Pathways for First-Year Students Program (SPFY) is to:

  • Ensure that first-time students successfully complete the General Education (GE) written communication (A2) and math/quantitative reasoning (B4) requirements within their first year.
  • Better prepare students in written composition and mathematics/quantitative reasoning before the fall term of freshman year, improving students’ chances of successful completion of a baccalaureate degree.
  • For general information, visit Supportive Pathways for First-Year Students Program (SPFY). Students are encouraged to visit the university website Pathways to Excellence for SPFY information once admitted.
  • Eligible financial aid applicants with an Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) of $6,000 or less will be eligible for waiver of the per unit SPFY fee. For more information on assessments, placements and the Supportive Pathways for First Year Students Program, please visit CSU Student Success.
