Current and prospective CSULB students who have questions about graduate school or the graduate school application process are encouraged to request a "graduate school support" appointment with the Graduate Center Coordinator or another member of the Graduate Center team. During an appointment, a current or prospective student can receive individualized feedback on statements and résumés/CVs., learn ways to secure funding for a graduate education, and talk about ways to stand out to the admissions committee. Note: The Graduate Center does not offer program-level academic advising for current students (e.g., course registration, course scheduling, graduation requirements). For such advising, contact your current department office and/or academic advisor.
