What Students Are Saying

3.47 Average Rating
Financial aid does tend to lag it a lot so it would be better for the students to check their GET every once in a while to check the disbursement dates and what you are being awarded. Like i said before you can also benefit from the services in the student union where you can get a free scantron and a blue book a day. Also the health center benefits students. If you ever feel sick you can always go to the health center and not worry about the cost being above your budget. Before choosing your classes always go on the ratemyprofessor.com to read reviews from other students.

BEFORE getting any classes talk to a counselor of your major, if you are undeclared we have general counselors for undecided majors located in the library Palm wing B.
-Get a Planner and write down EVERYTHING, work schedule, classes, chores, time to study, meetings and deadlines for classes.
-If you are undecided, go to your local library and check out a couple of books on Majors. Or the field you might be interested in. They usually list the years of schooling, degree required, type of place you will work in, competitiveness, salary and stress level.
-Take advantage of the Writing Center, Career center, Tutoring, Research assistance, library, Financial aid office ect. Making appointments is easy and most of the time bumps up your paper up one letter grade
-Its never too early to start looking in to internships that you might be interested in
-Join an organization on campus. Since this is a commuting campus, its hard meet new people and stay in touch. Joining an organization is fun and beneficial because you start networking for future jobs and maybe even make a couple of good friends. It gives you another reason to get up in the morning and want to go to school.

Dorms : Move in with someone you know, because moving in and not knowing anyone, there's going to be alot of miscommunication and nasty people.

School : DO NOT PROCRASTINATE !
Syrena from Los Angeles, CA
Make sure you ask older students any questions you may have because the administration and teachers will not tell you much.
Turn in your AP scores before registering or else you'll need to take it there and then get a permit to be allowed into that class, by then it might be full.
Get involved in clubs and organizations as soon as possible.
Jerry from El Monte, CA
GET INVOLVED! Even if you commute here you are not going to learn as much as you can if you just go to classes!!!! Join Student organizations and become active!!!! Oh and keep on top of your financial aid (they kinda lag it) and get to know your student government.
Jatomis from Azusa, CA
Prospective students should utilize all resources CSULA has to offer for freshman. I recommend getting into the Early Opportunity Program (EOP). This program gives you priority registration and also a grant.
Arlena, CSU LA Sophomore
I would recommend students to always do every scholarship. There are on campus scholarships that can help students fund their higher education. The faculty I have meet here have helped me with my personal statement, and letter of recommendations.
Nicole
If you're looking for an affordable education that will train you for the real world, CSULA is a good choice. As a UCLA undergrad, I had medium expectations for CSULA, but now that I've been here for a year, I'm glad I chose CSULA because the professors and the material are well worth my time.
Nina from El Monte, CA
i started on the right foot, i ended my first quarter with a good gpa. it was a gpa that i never accomplished in high school. i suggest to start with a good and positive mind each quarter. another tip is to do all the homework and turn in every paper.
Jazmin from Huntington Park, CA
Make sure to check GET for financial information. It tends to take a little bit longer for some students.
