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 adviser'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 adviser in an accurate and speedy manner.

Who Should Get Academic Advisement - and When?

Academic Advisement is highly recommended for all new students prior to their first quarter in attendance at Cal State L.A. After your initial advisement session, you should consult an academic adviser at least annually, or more often as necessary, to enhance academic success. Undergraduate students who, upon admission to the University, are unable to select a specific major must consult an academic adviser in the University Academic Advisement Center (Library South 1040A)
