Mentoring, Advising, and Placement Support (MAPS) Program
Welcome to MAPS (Mentoring, Advising, & Placement Support)! We provide support to first-year students and to the Beach Academy who are required to complete Mathematics with support, Written Communication (Composition I & II), and/or American Language Institute courses (ALI 145 & 150).
MAPS Peer Mentors support and encourage first-year students in their transition to CSULB. Through one-on-one interactions, Peer Mentors guide students, provide information and access to campus resources and services, and show students what’s up at The Beach!
The MAPS program collaborates with instructors and academic advisors for Mathematics, Written Communication, and American Language Institute Progress Reporting. The goal is to connect with students as early as possible during the semester to introduce them to campus resources and services to increase their chances of successfully completing their courses.
The MAPS program can help answer questions about Mathematics, Written Communication, and American Language Institute course placement, as well as Early Start Program requirements, Guided Registration, and Directed Self-Placement.
