Our office is located in the Jensen Student Access to Science (SAS) and Mathematics Center. Please visit or contact the office to schedule an advising appointment.

Postbaccalaureate Students

Thank you for your interest in Post-baccalaureate study at California State University, Long Beach.  Post-baccalaureate students who wish to complete the prerequisites for a health profession program can declare a second bachelor's degree. Visit Enrollment Services for admission deadlines.

If you wish to take a few courses but do not want to pursue a second degree as a CSULB student, you may enroll in courses through the College of Continuing and Professional Education, which allows non-matriculated students to enroll in courses with the permission of the instructor through “Open University”.  For information, visit the Open University website.
