What the AARC can do for you

Striving for Student Success

The Academic Advising & Resource Center (AARC) is focused on ensuring the success of CSUB’s students. Our goal is to work collaboratively with each student and each on-campus department so that all student needs are met and addressed, and all issues are rectified.

At the AARC, students work closely with professional staff advisors who are trained to work with and address 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 career-related goals
  • Discover their individual potential
  • Understand general education requirements
  • Select the appropriate major
