The academic advising process is very important to any degree-seeking student at CSULB. Whether your academic plan is the pursuit of a BS or MS Degree, the Department of Health Care Administration faculty work toward assuring your success. Academic advising is a partnership between you and your advisor; you each have responsibilities in the advising process. You can help your advisor by: 1) having transcripts and other information available about prior coursework; 2) completing prerequisite all courses; preferably before or within 2 semesters of declaring the major or being admitted into the graduate program.
