MANDATORY GROUP ADVISEMENT (MAG) SESSIONS

Fall 2015 MAG Sessions

MAG Sessions' Slides

Each major and option within the Department of Kinesiology has different advising policies and requirements. Please see the KIN advising policies or AT advising policies to determine your specific advising requirement. All freshmen (completion of <30 units total) will complete their advising requirement by attending a special freshman workshop led by the Kinesiology Academic Advisor, Sangita Dube (click here to register).

If you are required to attend a MAG session, please use the correct link below to register for a session. Dates, times, and locations are below. Space is limited and registration is required, so please register ASAP to get your first choice.

To sign up for an Exercise Science/Applied Fitness MAG session, go to:

Note: If you are an ES or AF transfer student in your first year, you will likely not have a “Major Advising” hold, and therefore, are not required to attend a MAG session. However, it is highly recommended that you attend anyway since you have never attended a MAG session before and there is very important information presented.

To sign up for a Sport Studies/General Studies MAG session, go to:

Note: All GS and SS students will have "Major Advising holds". If you have applied for graduation and would like to have your hold removed without attending a MAG session, send a current PDF copy of your DPR to your advisor along with a request to have your registration hold removed. If your DPR indicates a graduation date, your advisor will remove your hold.

To sign up for a No Declared Option MAG session, go to:

Note: If you have recently declared an option and it has not yet reflected on your DPR, you should attend a MAG session for your new option and notify the MAG session presenter of your recent change. If you do not notify the presenter, your hold will not be removed.

Important Information about MAG Sessions:

  • You MUST REGISTER for the session you wish to attend and bring your printed registration confirmation with you to be able to enter the room. You may register for ONE session only.
  • MAG sessions are specific to the majors and options. You must attend the MAG session specifically designated for your option in order to have your “Major Advising” hold removed prior to the registration-by-appointment period.
  • MAG slides and other information will be posted on the CSUN Kinesiology website in the STUDENTS section.
  • If you are unable to attend any of the scheduled MAG sessions, you must see your assigned advisor (in person, not via email) at least one week in advance of the first MAG session to inform them that you are not able to attend. If missing MAG is approved, you must then see your assigned advisor, in person, for advising and to have your major hold removed.
  • Do not wait to attend the last session … “stuff” happens. MAG policies are strictly enforced … no exceptions.
  • MAG sessions start strictly on time. Latecomers will not be admitted.
  • If you miss the MAG sessions without prior approval, you must see your assigned option advisor, in person, for advising. In this situation, your major hold will not be removed until the nonrestrictive registration period begins.
  • If you missed the MAG session you registered for, you should immediately sign up for another MAG session. If you are unable to attend any of the future MAG sessions, you must see your option advisor, in person, for advising. In this situation, your major hold will not be removed until the nonrestrictive registration period begins on December 9, 2015.

GRADUATION

 

Students should apply for graduation after they have completed 90 units (including work-in-progress). Students who have applied for graduation will have priority registration during their final semester at CSUN.

If your application is late, a $10 late fee will be assessed. Applying late may also prevent you from receiving graduating senior priority registration during your last semester. If you do not get priority registration for your last semester, the Department of Kinesiology cannot guarantee you enrollment in the courses you need to graduate on time.

Please refer to the Kinesiology Graduation Application Process form below for detailed application instructions specific to the Department of Kinesiology.
