BAC Services Will Be Offered Remotely Fall 2020

In light of the heightened concerns around COVID-19 and CSULB's decision to suspend in-person classes, BAC Counselors will work remotely until further notice. Our goal is to ensure that we can provide you with advising and assistance to successfully meet your goals. During this time, the BAC office will not be open for any in-person services (computer lab, tutoring, workshops), but we will maintain our normal advising hours online via Zoom. Tutoring/mentoring services will only be available via Zoom.

Students can email any of the BAC Counselors with questions. Please be sure to include your Name, Campus ID #, Phone # and any questions/concerns you may have. Please note: your BAC Counselor may need to schedule a Zoom appointment depending on your questions, if additional follow-up is needed.

New or prospective students can email us at

All current students should check BeachMail regularly for updates.
