Academic Advising is an ongoing educational process that connects the student to the university. Faculty members serve as academic advisors who represent and interpret university policies and procedures to students. Advisors help students navigate the academic and organizational paths of the institution.
Faculty advisors assist students in the course scheduling and academic planning necessary to fulfill the requirements of their degree program. In addition, faculty advisors provide information and direct students to resources that enable sound career and personal choices. Advising begins in the freshman year with the Freshman Seminar, a 1 hour course taken by freshmen based on their major that helps orient students into the university experience. Following the first semester of the freshman year, students are assigned to a permanent advisor in their major field of study.
Current Students can login to the student portal, MyCSU to access information for advising, find your advisor, declare your major, search for classes, register for classes, course guides and make appointments with an advisor.
