E-Advising Initiative

Improving student success
and timely graduation by empowering students and advisors through campus e-solutions.


CSULB is dedicated to making every student’s experience at The Beach lead to a degree in a timely manner. In order to accomplish this goal, CSULB developed a plan to empower undergraduate students and advisors. A proposal was sent to the Chancellor’s office to support four solutions that would directly impact student success through new technology and advisor support. All four solutions were approved, leading to the CSULB E-Advising Initiative which include: Education Advisory Board (EAB) Predictive Analytics, Smart Planner, Advisor Connect (Advisor Support System) and Class Schedule Planner. These solutions were implemented individually and rolled out in different intervals leading to a full campus-wide adoption in late 2015.

E-Advising Expansion

New tools includes Platinum Analytics which assists departments in anticipating student course needs and the Student Success Collaborative (SSC - Advising & Tutoring) which creates a coordinated care network (advisors, tutors, faculty, academic leaders and support staff).

Degree Planner

Automated tool (Degree Planner) that reduces advisor time on creating clear paths to degree using multi-year planner and road map to degree features.

SSC - Advising & Tutoring

System that brings four separate systems (EAB, Advisor Connect, GradesFirst and Tutor Trak) into one powerful student system that creates a "Coordinated Care Network" for students from targeting advising and referrals to using data analytics to identify struggling students.
