Academic Advising

Advising is vital to student success. Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration  students are encouraged to regularly seek advising. Resources for advising include Faculty, Department Chairs, as well as the Student Success Center (SSC).

Selecting a Concentration

Administration degrees are offered as a Bachelor of Arts, with multiple concentrations from which to choose. Students majoring in Administration are required to select a concentration, preferably within junior year (60 semester/90 quarter units). Administration students are required to complete core courses in addition to concentration coursework. 

Students selecting the Bachelor of Science, Information Systems and Technology (IST) follow a different set of requirements; however, core, as well as concentration courses must be completed. 

Links to requirement checklists and roadmaps are listed below.

Program Advising Worksheet for Students (PAWS)

The PAWS is an automated credit summary for undergraduate students, which provides a listing of all coursework required to graduate from CSUSB.  The PAWS includes courses currently, or previously taken (from any institution), as well as deficient courses required to complete a bachelor's degree. The PAWS is an excellent resource, is unique to every student, and should be used in conjunction with the degree requirement checklists and roadmaps listed below.

PAWS reports are available via My Coyote
