All freshman students entering CSULB should begin preparing for their first semester of study by taking the Mathematics and English Placement Tests (ELM and EPT) offered by the University. In addition to completing GE requirements prior to entering CSULB, transfer students should consult the CSULB catalog for lower division courses that may be taken at a community college. Please refer to the Department for possible updates. Registration for fall classes begins with the Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR) program.
