Advisement

Academic Advisement is an essential component for a positive student experience and your success at Cal State L.A. Obtaining Academic Advisement in a timely way and on a regular basis increases your opportunity to succeed academically, to successfully progress toward your degree objective, and to graduate in a timely manner.

In addition, because the approved degree program becomes the basis for determining your eligibility for a degree, changes in your program must have your advisor's approval. By seeing an academic adviser quarterly or at least semi-annually, your academic records can be entered on-line into the computer during advisement sessions. When the time comes for filing a "Graduation Check," it can be forwarded to the Graduation Office by your advisor in an accurate and speedy manner.
