Undergraduate Advising Resources

CSULB is committed to students graduating in a timely manner. CSULB advisors play a crucial role in this commitment and helping you navigate through your academic goals. Many advising centers at CSULB have drop-in hours available, but it is highly encouraged that you make an appointment through Beach Connect.

Advisors assist students with many of CSULB’s registration and degree planning functions, including:

  • Degree Planner
  • General Education Requirements 
  • Declaration or Change of Major
  • Educational Planning for Major Requirements
  • Academic Rules and Regulations... and many more.

Select a category below to view the available advising resources. You can also identify advising services in your major and/or specialized programs in your MyCSULB Student Center under the "Advisor" section.

All first-year students are required to attend a mandatory first-year advising workshop for their first two semesters:

  • Fall (to plan for spring registration)
  • Spring (to plan for fall registration)

If you are a member of a focused student program as outlined below, you will primarily be advised by your program advisor and continue to coordinate with your college advisor. 

Mandatory First-Year Advising:

  • Fall Semester:
    All first-year students participate in Fall First-Year Student Advising to help you prepare to register for spring classes. Advising begins in October with class registration taking place late November/early December.

    Through this process, you will meet with either your College/Department advisor or the University Center for Undergraduate Advising (UCUA)

    Look for an invitation via email directing you to the right program for your Fall First-Year Student Advising. Please read it carefully to determine how to schedule your appointment. Your registration appointment indicating the day and time you can register for spring classes will be on MyCSULB in late October.
     
  • Spring Semester: 
    Spring First-Year Student Advising is required of all first-year students. Through this process, you will meet with either your College/Department advisor or the University Center for Undergraduate Advising (UCUA). Advising begins in March with class registration beginning in late April/early May.

    As you prepare for your sophomore year, we require all first-year students to participate in the program prior to registering! Look for an invitation via e-mail directing you to the right program for your Spring First-Year Student Advising.

If you are a member of any of the focused student programs listed below, continue to coordinate with your major advisor and your program advisor.

The University Center for Undergraduate Advising (UCUA) is the primary advising center for:

  • Undeclared students
  • Students interested in exploring major options  or identifying an alternative major
  • Students seeking assistance in creating a strategy to improve grade point averages and clear an Academic Warning (Please note as of Fall 2022, "Academic Probation" is noted as Academic Warning)
  • Academically Disqualified students seeking reinstatement to CSULB

If you have not declared a major, you will continue to be advised by the University Center for Undergraduate Advising (UCUA); however, if you have interest in a specific major, you are encouraged to attend an Advising Session offered by that College/Department.  UCUA offers drop-in advising hours but recommends students make appointments through the Beach Connect Appointment System.


First-Year Students
First-year students who have not declared a major (or are uncertain of their current academic program) must attend an advising workshop offered by the University Center for Undergraduate Advising (UCUA) in the Student Success Center Room 140 (SSSC-140). If you are a first-year student and have not declared a major, please visit the UCUA website for undeclared students for more detailed information.
