Student Success Teams and Resources

We believe in you!

Student Success Teams at Cal State Fullerton comprise a unique, highly personalized, award-winning national model for empowering you, our students, to reach your goals. 

CSUF’s eight colleges, the Irvine center, and the Office of Graduate Studies have Student Success Teams. Teams include your associate deans, your faculty and staff major advisors, your graduation specialists (serving juniors and seniors to help you plan your degree completion); retention specialists (helping freshmen and sophomores navigate their college transition and overcome academic struggles); assistant deans (helping to connect you to a variety of leadership, wellness, community and other college-based experiences); and  career specialists (serving you early and often as you explore your talents and prepare for your transition to the professional world) and partners in the Academic Advisement Center. You are fortunate to have this caring support system throughout the campus.

You are strongly encouraged to seek out the advising teams outlined below to make  your Titan experience the best it can be.
