Student Life & Development

The Student Life and Development (SLD) Office Working Remotely Effective March 19, 2020

In light of the heightened concerns around COVID-19 and CSULB's decision to suspend in-person classes, SLD Advisors will work remotely until further notice. Our goal is to ensure that we can provide students with advising and assistance to successfully meet their goals. During this time, the SLD office will not be open for any in-person services (computer lab, tutoring, workshops), but we will maintain our normal advising hours online.

SLD advisors will be available online Monday - Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm starting March 19, 2020, until further notice.

Email Advising: Students can email their SLD Advisors listed below with questions regarding their student organizations. Please include your Name, Campus ID #, Phone #, student organization name, and any questions you may have.

Telephone Advising: Please email your SLD Advisor to schedule a telephone appointment.

Zoom Advising: Students can schedule a Zoom appointment by emailing their request to their SLD Advisor in advance.
