Entering Cal State LA as a Freshman
Freshmen entering Cal State LA should seek advisement early and often during their freshman year. Advisement is available from Dr. Richard Maddox, ULRN Advisor firstname.lastname@example.org. Advisement is available to freshmen as soon as they are admitted to Cal State LA, while they are still in high school.
Students majoring in Urban Learning and entering as freshmen will receive a 4-year program plan which will make their progress through the ULRN program easier and assure they select the courses they need. During their first two years, students entering as freshmen will complete a program of lower division general education (GE) coursework, coursework toward the elementary subject matter (ESM) waiver, and lower division Urban Learning major coursework. During their final two years, students are placed in a ULRN cohort and complete upper division GE coursework, remaining coursework toward the ESM waiver, and teacher preparation coursework and fieldwork.
