Advising is an integral part of your undergraduate education. The college strives to provide guidance and help you achieve your academic goals. You will have multiple advisors that will assist you along the way.

Major Advising


Once admitted, see your MAJOR advisor every semester before you register — PLAN, STRATEGIZE, SUCCEED!

Most NSM Majors will have mandatory major advising every semester connected to a registration hold placed on your account that will prevent you from registering for the following semester (fall and spring). Details are emailed to students in October and March each year. Please check your CSUF email for more information and visit department pages below:
