The NSS Advisement Center is committed to helping students complete their Degree Requirements. There will be reduced services during the transitional period while advisors make plans to connect with students who will not be coming to campus for classes.

  • There will be no face-to-face advising sessions.
  • Advisor calendars are open which allows students to make 30-minute virtual zoom or e-mail appointments. If you select a zoom appointment, your selected advisor will send you the zoom link via your school email. 
  • Please indicate if you would like a zoom or email appointment!
  • DO NOT go to the NSS Dean's Office for assistance!

The advisement team appreciates your patience and consideration during these adverse times!

In partnership with students and the wider Cal State LA community, the NSS Advisement Center's mission is to foster a supportive and validating learning environment where advisors teach and empower students to develop, understand, and achieve their educational goals. Our professional advising team helps students from orientation to graduation:
