STUDENT ADVISING OFFICE

  • Some students are assigned to the Advising Office
  • Most students will be partnered with a faculty advisor in their major

Tip: Once you have earned 61 hours or more, you can request an official degree audit through your MyCSU account. Click on the student tab, on the left click on forms and fill out the online form. You will receive an email from the Registrar's Office within two weeks with your audit. Students can only receive one official audit. When you apply to graduate, we automatically audit your record.

Advising research shows that students who develop a good relationship with their advisors are more likely to persist and graduate. An advisor helps to promote student growth and development and assists students in assessing their interests and abilities, examining their educational goals, and developing short-term and long-range plans to meet their objectives.

• Read the academic catalog carefully and be familiar with degree programs and requirements at the university
• Seek out answers to their questions and make use of all resources on campus
