Advising Information

Advising information

If you are graduating under the quarter catalog (fall 2019 or earlier), then USE YOUR PAWS to decide which courses you still need. If something is amiss or didn't translate properly from quarters to semesters, please contact Dr. Cousins, kcousins@csusb.edu

Semester Roadmaps: this includes two/four year plans for Semester Catalog, as well as translation tables to convert old course numbers to new. It also indicates semesters in which courses are likely to be available. All math classes required are available every semester and summer session. The only chemistry course regularly taught in summer is general chemistry, Chem 2400/2400L & 2500/2500L

General Education for Semesters: Please note that our major courses do NOT include any courses designated "Writing Intensive (WI)", "Diversity-Inclusion (DI)" or "Global Perspectives (G)". In order to avoid having to take additional courses, students are urged to take GE courses that also meet these designations. One DI and one G course are needed for graduation; two WI courses (at least one at the upper division) are also required; ENG 3066 also meets the upper division WI requirement.
