CECS Advisement

Students pursuing degrees in the College of Engineering and Computer Science are required to seek advisement prior to registration. This is the time to spend with your advisor to make certain that you are on track with your educational goals and that you are planning a realistic schedule for the following semester. Your academic advisor can also answer many other types of questions that you may have or refer you to the appropriate resource.
Where To Go For Advisement
Student Services Center/EOP Satellite- Jacaranda Hall (JD) 1501:
  • All First-Time Freshmen
  • Continuing Students - enrolled in 100 and/or 200 level courses in your major
  • All EOP Students
To schedule a SSC/EOP advisement appointment, call (818) 677-2191
Major Department Office:
  • All First-Time Transfers
  • Continuing Students enrolled in 300 and above level courses in your major
  • All 2nd Bachelors
  • All Disqualified Students
To schedule an advisement appointment call your major department office:

Tutorial Services

As a part of our commitment to help students achieve academic success in the College of Engineering and Computer Science, Facilitated Academic Workshops (FAW), Cooperative Learning Participation, and Living Learning Community (LLC) programs are available. Each program is committed to helping students develop a better understanding of course content.

Facilitated Academic Workshops provide a weekly, group facilitated, study session to engineering and computer science related courses that have a high academic failure rate each semester. The current targeted courses for FAW are: AM 316, CE 240, ECE 240, ME 370, and Comp 110.
The Cooperative Learning Participation program provides individual and group tutoring to students enrolled in over 200 engineering and computer science related sections throughout the semester. 
Living Learning Community - students in the Living Learning Community Dorm are provided with in-house tutoring for science and engineering related courses.
On average, 90% of students that participate in these services pass their class! These programs work!!!
The tutorial facilities are located in Jacaranda Hall (JD) 1622B. Tutoring hours are from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. By request, provisions for weekend and night tutoring can be arranged. Tutoring begins the second week of every semester.
You may contact the Tutorial Program Coordinator, Doris Chaney by telephone at (818) 677-2191 or by email at for further information.

Louis Stokes - Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP)

The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program at California State University Northridge (CSUN) is part of a state and national effort to help students succeed. The program is a joint project between the National Science Foundation and the California State University System.
LSAMP's goal is to increase participation in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) especially for those underrepresented in these majors.
At LSAMP we support participating students with majors in science (such as biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy, geology), or technology majors (including engineering, math, & computer science) to attain baccalaureate degrees, and to complete graduate school.
Students may apply to LSAMP at any time. Stop by our office today for more information about the services we provide and/or to fill out an application.
CSU-LSAMP is funded through the National Science Foundation (NSF) under grant #HRD-0802628 and the Chancellor’s Office of the California State University.
