Freshmen Spring Advising

CSULB requires all freshmen to receive academic advising in their spring semester in order to register for their third semester (fall term).

If you do not receive academic advising during the spring semester, your registration hold will not be lifted.

Declared CHHS majors/pre-majors satisfy this requirement by attending a CHHS freshmen advising session. See below for further instructions.
