Advising Appointments

Academic advising is available to all admitted (matriculated) undergraduate students at CSUSM. Due to the high demand of our matriculated students, we are unable to accommodate and meet with undergraduate extended learning students and prospective students.


Beginning on November 26th, 2018, students will now be able to have drop-ins available for the remainder of the semester.  This means that there will no longer be appointments offered in order to serve as many students as possible. 

Please see below for more information on the times drop-ins will be available: 

Drop In Times:


9:00 A.M. - 11:00 A.M. 

12:00 P.M.-1:00 P.M. Closed

1:30 P.M. - 3:30 P.M.

Important Reminder: 

The CoBA Advising Office will be closed on December 7th, 2018 There will be no drop-ins available this day. Please plan accordingly with any paper work that needs to be submitted.  If you need to drop off applications or student forms, feel free to use our drop box located outside our office. We will resume with drop-ins hours on December 10th, 2018

Thank you, 

 Appointment Information:

Appointments are necessary for help with educational planning, evaluation of academic progress, and graduation evaluations.  

Appointment Policies

  • New appointments are posted every Thursday 
  • Appointments can be scheduled at least 2 weeks in advance.
  • Advisors are rotated at random; you can meet with whomever is available for your option.
  • Students are allowed to sign in 10 minutes before their scheduled appointment time. If students arrive more than 10 minutes after their scheduled appointment time, they are considered a ‘no show’ and will not be able to schedule another appointment for a 30 day period. 
  • Cancellations must be made within 2 hours of scheduled appointment time. If you cannot cancel the appointment online, please call the CoBA Advising office at 760-750-4230 to cancel.
  • Students who fail to cancel their scheduled appointment will be marked as a no show but will be allowed to schedule a 2nd appointment. 
  • If students have 2 "no show " appointments, they will automatically be blocked from the system and will not be able to schedule another appointment for a 30 day period.

We advise students to plan ahead and see an advisor during non-peak periods to avoid long waits.
