Continuing Student Advising

All continuing students (Sophomore, Juniors, Seniors) should meet at least once a year with their academic advisor.

Academic advising aims to facilitate your intellectual and personal development, enhance your academic performance, and ensure your progress towards graduation.

We recognize that school and life can be challenging. Here are some resources that can help:

Clubs and Organizations

Have you joined a club or organization? If not, we highly recommend you get involved in a club associated with your major or an on-campus organization--CSULB has over 300 clubs and organizations. To learn more about your options go to BeachSync and click on Organizations tab. While you are there check out all of the events happening on campus with the Events tab.
