As a division of Academic Affairs, Undergraduate Studies (UGS) provides outstanding academic support to all CSUSB undergraduate students. UGS helps students establish and maintain a sense of belonging with the university through academic support services and programs.  By delivering essential specialized student-support programs including, but not limited to: Advising and Academic Services; Coyote First Step (CFS); Early Assessment Program (EAP); Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) and Renaissance Scholars Program; First Year Seminar; a Student Mentoring Program (SMP); Student Assistance in Learning (SAIL); and the University Honors Program, UGS facilitates pathways to graduation and enhances the undergraduate experience. Enrichment services for programs include, but are not limited to: tutoring and Supplemental Instruction (SI) for numerous courses on campus; testing; and support for all writing projects and assignments at the CSUSB Writing Centers, where one-to-one personalized writing conferences are available to students. We value the inherent academic potential in all CSUSB students, and through interactions with our staff members, students are guided to make well-informed educational decisions and plans to create the most meaningful education for themselves.  The UGS goal is to help prepare students to become critical thinkers, effective communicators, collaborative employees, scholars, and colleagues who will be the future leaders in a rapidly evolving world.
