American Indian Student Services

Every year thousands of students make California State University, Long Beach their University of Choice - selecting CSULB for its strong academic reputation, award-winning faculty, successful alumni, personalized student support services, advanced facilities, spirited campus life and more!

We receive many calls regarding admissions, tribal enrollment, scholarships, grants and financial aid. We hope that the following information will answer some questions or raise others which will inspire you to give me a call or to come by my office for more information.

We are committed to supporting American Indian students in attaining their higher education. Not every university offers services specifically to American Indian students so we hope you take this opportunity to take full advantage of everything we offer.

Commitment to Education

California State University, Long Beach has long enjoyed the reputation of having an active American Indian presence on campus and having many American Indian alumni. The university has a tradition of commitment to American Indians dating back to the fall of 1968 when several American Indian students were specifically recruited to Long Beach to begin classes. Today, CSULB actively assists American Indian students in achieving their academic goals and enhancing their personal, intellectual, and social development.

American Indian Leaders of Today & Tomorrow (AILOTT) Education Conference: Saturday, January 26, 2019

The AILOTT Conference is designed to bring together American Indian students in middle school, high school, community colleges, and re-entry programs to provide them with an awareness of culture, career and educational opportunities.  AILOTT enhances the opportunity for the community and campus to unite and work towards a better future for American Indians as a whole.  AILOTT's success is attributed to the full participation from students, parents, educators, community members, and our student committee at CSULB.  

We will have a series of workshops, including sessions pertaining to university admissions and financial aid, a keynote presentation, and workshops on Language Revitalization. Breakfast and lunch will be served.

In addition to students partaking in this conference, we encourage teachers, aides, counselors, parents, and concerned community members to participate with the students.  We ask that you supervise your student(s). 

If you, your student, school, or program is interested in attending, please fill out the enclosed Registration Form and CSULB Waiver Form, one for every participant, and email them to us by January 23, 2019.  You may also bring the Registration and Waiver forms with you on Saturday, January 26.
