Appointment Procedures & Guidelines 

  • To schedule an appointment with an academic advisor, click on the Beach Connect logo on the right-hand side of our home page. 

  • You can only schedule an appointment up to two weeks in advance. 

Appointment Information 

  • Bring your CSULB ID card to any in-person advising appointment. 

  • Since advising sessions are scheduled for 20-minute intervals, we recommend you review your Academic Requirements Report on your Student Center (myCSULB) prior to your appointment. 

Late Appointments 

  • Advising appointments are scheduled for 20-minute sessions, so it is recommended that you arrive 10 minutes early. 

  • Your appointment may be cancelled if you are 10 minutes late. 


  • If you cannot keep an appointment, you must cancel the appointment at least 24 hours in advance. 

  • Please be courteous to other students by planning ahead (cancel or reschedule in a timely fashion). This will help open time slots for other students.
