Drop-In Hours & Advising Appointments

Visit the ATLAS Office during Drop-In Advising hours or click the “Make an Appointment” button on the right. If our times do not work for your schedule, call us at (562) 985-7804 or stop by our office in PH1-104. We are happy to accommodate you to the best of our ability.

Current Students

ATLAS advisors are the primary advisors for the departments of American Studies, Chicano & Latino Studies, Economics, Philosophy, Psychology, Religious Studies, and Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies. If your major is outside of these departments, contact your Department Advisor for major-specific academic advising.

Due to the high demand for our degree programs, CSULB majors are considered impacted. Departments determine their own required courses and GPA requirements for admission. You are in a “pre-major” until the prerequisites for your major are complete. If you would like more information, visit the University’s official website regarding major-specific declaration requirements.

Incoming Students

For students entering the University, SOAR will be your first opportunity to enroll in classes. At SOAR, our ATLAS team assists students with degree requirements and class schedules. ATLAS advises over 10,000 students in the College of Liberal Arts, so our advisors are unable to meet with prospective students.

Prospective Students

ATLAS only sees currently enrolled students due to personnel and fiscal restraints. Here are some useful links to help prospective students find information regarding admissions and transferring to CSULB.
