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 to your degree goals. Many advising centers at CSULB have drop in hours available to you, but we encourage you to make an appointment through the online scheduling system called Beach Connect.  

Advisors assist students with many of CSULB’s registration and degree planning functions. 

Some of these functions include:

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

In addition to the advising tables below, undergraduate students can quickly identify advising services in your major and specialized programs in your MyCSULB Student CenterHighlighted in a box on the lower right-hand labeled "Advisor," click the details link to find advisor contact information.

 

Mandatory Freshmen Advising

All undergraduate freshmen are required to attend a mandatory freshman advising workshop for your first two semesters:

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

​*If you are a member of a special student program, you will continue to work with your Special Program advisor.  See Special Student Programs for contact information and more information.

Mandatory Freshmen Advising

Fall  Semester:
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)

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.

Spring Semester: 
Spring Freshman Advising is required of all Freshman students. Through this process, you will meet with either your College/Department advisor or the University Center for Undergraduate Advising (UCUA).  Advising begins in late March with class registration taking place usually in early April.

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

Special Student Advising Programs
