Mentor Advising Center

Our staff is knowledgeable and here to help. To schedule an appointment with a knowledgable Mentor in your field, we recommend calling 909-537-5518 or sending an email to themac@csusb.edu. The center is staffed weekdays and walk-ins are welcome.

To receive the most accurate advising, please come prepared with your most current PAWS Report. A PAWS Report accurately tells the adviser what General Education requirements you've already met and which requirements are still pending.


Our Peer Advisors have walked in your shoes and are here to make your journey enjoyable. Your success is our commitment.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
