The Office of Academic Advising for student-athletes has been at California State University, Northridge since 1993. The office became apart of the Matador Achievement Center in 2015. They provide information to the student athletes and guide them to make informed choices. The Academic Advisors provide team meetings as well as individual advisement sessions. They also see all recruits and potential student athletes when they come to Northridge for the first time. Athletic Advisors serve as an advocate for the student athlete and provide referrals when necessary. The Athletic Advisor assists in course selection and scheduling and continually informs the student athletes about NCAA and University rules and regulations. Academic eligibility information is also provided as necessary. Academic success is our biggest priority and must be achieved while striking a balance with the time demands of Division I intercollegiate athletics.
