Freshmen Fall Advising

CSULB requires all freshmen to receive academic advising in their fall semester in order to register for their second semester (spring term). Declared CHHS majors/pre-majors satisfy this requirement by attending an advising workshop hosted by AARC.

If you do not receive academic advising during the fall semester, your registration hold will not be lifted.

All CHHS advising workshops are now complete. Read the instructions below for instructions on how to have your advising hold removed.
