Fall 2014 Advisement - All journalism students who plan to attend CSUN during the Fall 2014 semester must see their advisers for academic counseling during the advisement period which will begin on Monday, March 17, 2014. Students will not be cleared for registration until the department has the counseling form on file. Advisers' office hours are available on the table outside the Journalism Department office. The Journalism Department does not make appointments, so plan to see your adviser during his or her office hours. Pick up you advisement form and file in the department office (MZ 210) before seeing your adviser. Once advisement has been completed, both the advisement form and file must be returned to the office. If needed, students should also obtain the instructors' signatures for any restricted classes.
