This Friday November 20th is the deadline to drop without the college dean's signature. In almost all cases, withdrawal in the last three weeks of classes (after November 20th) will involve total withdrawal from all classes due to the serious nature of an illness or injury. Also in most cases, withdrawal during this period is accomplished using the Medical Withdrawal Form available from the Office of Enrollment Services. The student's physician must submit a statement confirming the serious illness or injury. If the request for total withdrawal is approved, the student will be withdrawn from all classes and the transcript will reflect a 'W' for each course. Students should go to the Office of Enrollment Services in situations of serious illness or injury.

Interning at Internet Brands would be a unique opportunity for CSULB students: our interns write code that is seen by millions of people. While doing project based development work, interns will be exposed to agile-style methodologies, and moreover, interns get exposure to working in professional teams including business partners, project managers, QA engineers and technical mentors - actual work experience that will help prepare them for full time careers after school. The internship program is competitive, and is open only to students enrolled in BS, MS and PhD programs. We have a limited number of positions, and we evaluate intern candidates against several criteria including: knowledge of computer science fundamental principals; analytical ability; communication skills; and eagerness to learn and grow in a professional setting. We have created this internship program specifically for students like those at CSULB: we hope that by working with talented local students that we might be able to offer our interns full-time employment after graduation.
