Academic Advising

New Transfer Students

Welcome to CSU Channel Islands!

Please take a moment to review our Transfer Pre-Advising Guide. It is highly recommend that you download and review this guide prior to attending the advising workshop. The guide explains how advising and registration take place at CI.

During our advising transfer workshops we will discuss information from the Island Compass Guide and the Destination Degree Booklet. The information contained in these guide's will provide you with a better understanding of what will be needed to complete your degree requirements and to achieve your personal and academic goals at CI.
