Academic Advising & Resource Center (AARC)

Providing the Help Students Need to Succeed at CSUB

The CSUB Academic Advising & Resource Center (AARC) is the University’s central location for academic advising and other student support services. At the AARC, students work closely with professional faculty and staff advisors who are trained to work with the diverse needs of our student population. AARC advisors work in close partnership with students to help them:

  • Learn how to set and achieve their academic and life goals
  • Discover their individual potential
  • Get the most up-to-date and accurate information for their plan of study
  • Plan an efficient path toward graduation
