E-Advising Initiative

Overview and Timeline

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 will be implemented individually and rolled out in different intervals leading to a full campus-wide adoption in late 2015.
