Mandatory Freshman Advising (MFA)

All CSULB freshmen are required to receive Mandatory Freshman Advising during their first and second semester at CSULB. CNSM students must attend a freshman advising workshop facilitated by the CNSM Academic Advising Center in order to have their advising hold lifted.

If you are planning to change your pre-major outside of the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (CNSM), please contact us.

Registration

MFA registration is now closed. Please email CNSM-Advising@csulb.edu to make other accomodations if you still need to complete Mandatory Freshman Advising.
