Academic Advising for Science and Math Students

CNSM Academic Advising serves the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (CNSM) and is committed to helping students graduate in a timely manner with a highly-valued degree from California State University Long Beach. This is accomplished through providing excellent academic advising and support services, while partnering with CNSM students to identify and achieve their educational and career goals.

Need Advising Help?

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.

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.

For Chemistry or Biochemistry, please go to the Chemistry Department (HSCI-370) for a request form. For all other majors, please contact the respective CNSM major advisor.

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.

Please note that FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) laws prohibit advisors from discussing with a parent their adult student's academics without written consent from their student. For general questions please email Tim Kalliomaa, Coordinator of Advising, CNSM Academic Advising Center at
