Academic advising assists students in forming intentional partnerships that connect their needs, values, abilities and goals to CSUN’s educational program. Academic advising is an ongoing relationship and a collaborative process that helps students identify and reach their academic objectives through investigation and use of a wide variety of campus resources. Academic advising is the shared responsibility of faculty, staff and students. It incorporates the continuum of teaching and learning moments that both stimulate and support students in their quest for an enriched quality of life. These interactions assist students in realizing their academic and professional goals and facilitate timely graduation.
CSUN provides a wealth of academic advising services and resources for students, including referrals to faculty and staff advisors. Undergraduate students should visit the Undergraduate Studies Academic Advisement page and graduate students should visit the Masters Programs by Option page for advisor contact information.
