Office Hours

“Project Rebound office hours are open to anyone who has questions. Please drop-in Monday-Thursday from 9 am to 11 am for any information about Project Rebound.”



Project Rebound is a specialized program that empowers formerly incarcerated and system impacted students at CSU San Marcos. We guide our students in all aspects of academia and beyond; holding them to high standard of academics. Project Rebound also acts a direct liaison between networks throughout the campus as a whole and the surrounding community. 


 Project Rebound was founded in 1967 by Professor John Irwin at CSU San Francisco. The program, back then and now, is run by full-time staff and students, most of whom have had prior incarceration experiences. The program offers wrap- around services to students impacted by the criminal justice system. By offering college support, students excel in higher education. The program seeks to admit full-time students to CSUSM who are motivated to be successful and who are dedicated to transforming their lives
