New Student Orientation Dates: Winter 2013: Oct 20, Jan 4

New Student Orientation is a requirement for all newly admitted students. The orientation program will familiarize students with various CSUB Antelope Valley policies, procedures, requirements, and student services. Students will receive an invitation to orientation via standard mail. Promptly attending an orientation will enable students to avoid having an Advising hold placed on their account.

Clearing Holds

Students should contact their evaluator directly. Student evaluators are appointed alphabetically, according to a student's last name. To speak to an evaluator, call 1-800- 788-2782 and ask for Admissions and Records.

Advising Hold:

Students must attend an orientation in order to clear an advising hold. If after attending an Orientation an advising hold still exists the student should contact the University Advising Center (UAC) for assistance (661) 952-5010.
