Where to Go for Advising

Your selected major resides in one of Cal State East Bay's four academic colleges - contact the appropriate office to find out how you can connect with your advisor:

The advising community at East Bay is composed of advisors not only located in college student service centers and academic departments, but in programs that service specific populations, too, such as Athletics, EOP, EXCEL, GANAS, International, etc. For a complete list of advising resources, see Academic Advising.

Now that you have been admitted to the university...

  • SELECT AND ENROLL FOR CLASSES: Locate your degree roadmap, or refer to CSUEB's online catalog, to familiarize yourself with your major requirements. Use the Guide for Transfer Students to determine other requirements you need to fulfill - these classes may help to round-out your schedule and reach full-time status (12-15 units).
  • SEE YOUR ACADEMIC ADVISOR: As a transfer student, the majority of coursework you’ll complete at CSUEB will be for your major. Your academic advisor, located in either a college student service center or academic department, will be able to review your major and general graduation requirements.
  • REGISTER FOR TRANSFER ORIENTATION: Orientation will be offered online during Summer 2020. Registration is set to open in mid-May, with a link in MyCSUEB. For more information visit Orientation.
