Summer School Workshops

If you are considering taking courses during summer and would like to explore your options, please attend one of the Hub’s Summer School Workshops. We will be discussing the difference between taking courses here at CSUN vs a community college and answering any questions you may have. If you need advisement for what courses to take during the summer, please call our front desk at 818-677-2900 to ask about meeting with an advisor.

If you have any questions about the Hub’s Summer School Workshops, please email Claudia Richarte at

Pre-Health Workshop

If you are interested in learning about how to prepare for health profession graduate programs, please join us in the Pre-health workshop to learn about choosing a major, prerequisites, extracurricular activities, and how to get involved.

The workshop is geared towards students who are interested in going on to professional health care programs such as medicine, dentistry, optometry, pharmacy, veterinary, physician assistant and occupational therapy. This workshop is designed to ensure students have learned the basic information and can begin meeting the requirements for competitive application.

The Pre-Health Workshop is an opportunity to chat with CSUN’s Pre-Health advisor and engage in an interactive online workshop with other peers.
