Freshman Fall Advising

In MyCSULB, a new feature has been added for undergraduate students to quickly identify advising services in your major and specialized programs. You will now see in your Student Center a box on the lower right-hand labeled "Advisor." Click the details link to find advisor contact information.

All freshman participate in Fall Freshman Advising to help you prepare to register for Spring classes. Advising begins in October with class registration taking place usually in December.

Through this process, you will meet with either your College/Department advisor or the University Center for Undergraduate Advising (UCUA). If you are a member of a special student program, you will continue to work with your Special Program advisor.

This connection is one of the most important steps to your future academic success at the Beach! We feel strongly about insuring you have advising as you prepare for your spring semester at CSULB so we require all freshmen to participate in the program before registering!

Look for an invitation via e-mail directing you to the right program for your Fall Freshman Advising. Please read it carefully to determine how to schedule your appointment for this very special event. Your registration appointment indicating the day and time you can register for Spring classes will be on MyCSULB in late October.
