Current CNSM Students

Each student in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics has an assigned academic advisor. This assignment is based on whether you are fully declared or a pre-major, and your particular major within CNSM. If you are a pre-major then email your pre-major advisor, otherwise please contact your major advisor.

Current CSULB Students wanting to change majors to CNSM

If you are a freshmen or sophomore with under 50 earned units then please email the assigned pre-major advisor for your major of interest. Otherwise, please contact the relevant major advisor.

Prospective CSULB Students

Please contact University Outreach & School Relations (562-985-5358) if you are wanting information on The Beach. Outreach is available to help you make an informed decision about your college choice.

If you have already applied, then please contact undergraduate admissions for all your application questions (562-985-2500) as academic advising is unable to answer these questions.
