Freshmen Fall Advising

CSULB requires all freshmen to receive academic advising in their fall semester in order to register for their second semester (spring term).

If you do not receive academic advising during the fall semester, your registration hold will not be lifted.

Declared CHHS majors/pre-majors satisfy this requirement by attending a CHHS freshmen advising session. See below for further instructions.
