About the Graduate Studies Center

The Graduate Studies Center (GSC)’s goal is to empower graduate students to utilize the full range of resources and opportunities at CSUF. The GSC aims to serve prospective and current students through their journey in graduate school. We provide high-quality writing support, academic and professional development workshops, and a safe and welcoming space for graduate students to find their community on-campus. 

Workshops and Events

The GSC is happy to provide workshops and events for prospective and current CSUF graduate students. We are also proud to promote our campus partners' events that are relevant for our prospective and current graduate students.

Writing Appointments

The GSC offers free one-on-one Writing Appointments to all CSUF graduate students. Our skilled Writing Consultants are happy to help you with any writing assignment you encounter in your graduate program. Writing appointments are interactive and collaborative sessions. Remember that Writing Consultants are not editors and cannot make changes to your work.

Please note the following about Writing Appointments:

  • Students may make one appointment per week. The Graduate Studies Center monitors student appointments and may contact students to cancel additional appointments if more than one appointment is booked per week.
  • DSS students may book two appointments per week.
  • Appointments are set for one hour.
  • Appointments can be booked up to two weeks in advance and can fill up quickly, so book well in advance of your assignment due dates.
  • Appointments are currently available in the fall and spring semesters.

Writing Appointments are booked on our Online Calendar.

Private Study Room Reservation

The GSC has a private study room that can be reserved by current graduate students. This small room includes a large white board, two desks, and charging outlets and can fit a maximum of 3 students comfortably. As we only have one private study room available, students are limited to booking the study room for a maximum of 3 hours per day. This can be split into multiple reservations. Students can book the study room up to 2 weeks in advance, but same-day booking is not allowed; students may use the study room on a first-come, first-serve basis if the study room is not reserved.

The private study room can be booked on our Online Calendar.
