CSU Advise provides students with a central resource for information about the academic programs, student support services, and other opportunities available at CSU. CSU Advise assists students in exploring various majors and refers them, when appropriate, to related campus resources such as the Career Center and the Counseling Center. Advisors serve as primary advisors for all freshmen and sophomores. CSU Advise also works closely with faculty advisors in all academic departments to provide specialized advising to transfer students, first-year students who have not selected their majors, and returning students who are considering changes to their major. The staff of the CSU Advise are supportive of students and encourage them to make responsible and informed decisions about their programs of study.
