When to See a UCUA Advisor

Undergraduate students should consult a UCUA advisor for:

  • information about Major Specific Declaration Requirements and the major declaration process,
  • assistance in identifying or exploring a new major,
  • advice about degree progress or fulfilling university requirements
  • clarification of academic standing and academic probation policy
  • help in understanding academic disqualification and strategizing reinstatement to CSULB.

When to See Your College or Department Advisor

Students with questions about their major requirements are encouraged to contact their college or departmental advisors.

Students should track degree progress by utilizing tools found in MyCSULB and regularly meet with academic advisors to ensure that they are making timely progress toward degree completion.
