Welcome to CSUSM!

We are so excited that you have chosen CSU San Marcos to pursue your educational goals! The vision of the Dean of Students Office is for CSUSM students, individually and collectively, to have a holistic learning experience that inspires and empowers you to change the world. Your learning and development in and out of the classroom is informed by CSUSM’s Co-Curricular Model. Our hope is that all students find at least one out of the classroom experience to compliment your classroom learning.

The Dean of Students Office commits to providing advocacy, care and support from the first day on campus through graduation whether you are a first-generation college student, a transfer from another institution or in a graduate program. We are here for you---leaders of tomorrow.

We strive for inclusive excellence and make every effort to ensure CSUSM students feel a strong sense of belonging and Cougar pride!  We are pleased to provide signature programs such as The Civility Campaign and Cougar Care Network to help students grow, make friends, persist and have fun!

We invite you to visit our office in the University Student Union building (USU), suite 3500 for resources and support or share your feedback, questions or concerns by emailing or calling (760) 750-4935.

I am inspired by our students and their amazing Cougar spirit each and every day. I hope to get to know you in the coming year and look forward to supporting your academic and personal success at CSUSM!

In Cougar Spirit,
Jason Schreiber

Suggestions for Families & Parents

  1. Your student still needs you - The relationship may change and evolve, but they still need your support.
  2. Encourage and work with your student on solving their challenges - Help guide them to solve their problems rather than solving for them.
  3. For class concerns, ask your student:
    • Have they contacted the professor via email or phone, or been to the professor’s office hours?
    • Have they sought out resources?
  4. Still not sure, connect to Cougar Care Network
