Graduate Studies Center (GSC)
About the GSC
The Graduate Studies Center’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 throughout their journey in graduate school. We provide high-quality writing support with skilled Writing Consultants to support graduate students. The GSC hosts academic and professional development workshops relevant to graduate student needs. We strive to offer a safe and welcoming physical space for students to study, work, and gather while on campus.
Current GSC Hours
The GSC will be closed on Fridays during Summer 2022.
The GSC is located in LH-216 and features individual study desks, group tables, lounge spaces, whiteboards, power outlets, and a small kitchen for CSUF students. Drop by whenever you need some space to work or relax in between classes!
The GSC provides 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.
- 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.
Private Study Room Reservation
Current graduate students may book the small private study room in the GSC in LH-216. This private room includes a large white board, two desks, and charging outlets. This room can fit a maximum of 3 students. Since we have only one private room, students are limited to booking 1 reservation per day for either one hour or two hours.
