CSULB is committed to student success. University undergraduate academic advising services and academic departments are responsible for providing academic direction for new and continuing students. While advising offices mainly provide information and advise about general education, academic departments advise students about their major requirements and other important academic issues. Students are advised to check with advisors for current and relevant information.
