There are several different resources that can help you determine what requirements you need to graduate, including:
An academic advisor is a professional staff member who is trained in the complex details of CSUSM's academic, general education and University requirements and can provide accurate and specific advice about academic requirements.
A faculty advisor is a faculty member from your major or minor department who can provide in-depth advice about that program’s curriculum as well as advice about course choices, career paths, and preparation for graduate or professional study.
Visit our Academic Advising website to view the many ways to connect with an Academic Advisor.
It is possible to take 15 units a semester if you work full-time; however, we expect that for every unit that you are registered, you commit two to three hours of time per week, including class time to your studies. Therefore, a 15-unit load implies a 45 to 60-hour-a-week commitment to class and study.
Personalized Academic Success Services (PASS) works with students to assess each student’s situation holistically to provide appropriate support and resources (on-campus or in the community) to help students achieve academic and personal success.
Note, if you are in any of the following programs, please see your program counselor/advisor instead of PASS for individual assistance. However, workshops offered through PASS are available for all CSUSM students:
