Resources & Services
The LGBT Queer Resource Center strives to provide students with the resources and training needed to become a successful student at California State University, Fullerton. There are a list of campus and community resources that we find may be useful for undergraduates, graduates, staff, and faculty.
Our mission is to work in a collaborative partnership with students, a shared responsibility, where the advisor and student are equally invested in the educational process and holistic development of the student.

Financial aid is available to remove the cost barriers that may prevent you from pursuing your educational goals. Assistance is available from a variety of programs funded by federal, state, university and private sources. Students who demonstrate significant financial need may qualify for grant aid while students with less need may obtain low cost loans. Financial need is determined through a federal formula that assesses the family’s relative financial strength and ability to contribute to meeting the student’s educational costs.

Queer Studies in Women & Gender Studies Department
Queer Studies examines the dynamics of heteronormativity, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender roles, and embodiment, and the influence of these intersecting factors on our daily lives, cultural institutions, political discourses, media representations and within the arts.
A Queer Studies Minor designation on a student's transcript distinguishes them affirmatively in application to graduate school across many fields. Additionally, it makes students more competitive for employment and internships in fields including social work, counseling, education, healthcare, social service, government, the law and nonprofit advocacy. A Queer Studies Minor positions CSUF graduates on the leading edge of cultural, social, political and scientific knowledges, and it recognizes their specific expertise in one of the most culturally and politically relevant topics of our time.
