The CSUN Student Research and Creative Works Symposium takes place each spring semester. The purpose of the symposium is to highlight student achievement and to inform the campus community of the excellent quality and diversity of research and creative activity being conducted by undergraduate and graduate students across all academic disciplines.

There are separate undergraduate and graduate divisions for each of the following categories: Behavioral and Social Sciences; Biological and Agricultural Sciences; Business and Economics; Creative Arts and Design; Education; Engineering and Computer Science; Health, Nutrition, and Clinical Sciences; Humanities and Letters; and Physical and Mathematical Sciences.
Students make either an oral or poster presentation.

For the poster session, a cash award is given to the outstanding undergraduate and graduate student.
