The UAAC will collaborate with and be a support forum for faculty, staff and peer advisors involved in academic advising. Students at CSUSB will receive ongoing academic support and feel empowered to develop educational plans to accurately reflect their personal, educational, and professional goals. Students will also be informed, become self-advocating, and knowledgeable of resources available to aid them as they successfully matriculate and graduate from their program of choice.
Are you trying to find out how your department handles advising? Well we're here to help! We have provided you with a one stop shop for your quarterly advising information as well as information updates as the campus adopts new policies and procedures.
WHO IS MY ADVISOR?
Each college handles advising differently. In some cases you will be able to speak with a well-trained peer advisor. In other cases you will be assigned to a faculty advisor.
Whether you are meeting with a peer, faculty or staff advisor be sure to print a copy of your PAWs report and bring it with you to your advising appointment. If you are unsure how to access your PAWS please check out the View My PAWS Report page at the MyCoyote eHelp Center website.
STUDENT SERVICES / SUPPORT
Our campus offers several services to assist students during their degree pursuit. However, that is not only limited to educational programs. We offer assistance in the areas of Financial Aid, Counseling and Support Groups, conflict resolution and much more!
UNDERSTANDING HOW TO READ THE PAWS
Each incoming undergraduate student is provided with a report containing the courses they have already completed and those which are outstanding. This report is updated each time the student makes a change to their major, registers for a course, turns in new transcripts as well as when a student's grades are posted.
It is important for students, staff and faculty to become familiar with the PAWs to ensure that the information provided to our students is up to date and accurate.
