Dual Advising Model
The College of Science and Mathematics offers a dual advising model for students in the college. This means that you will be assigned to a faculty mentor in your major, but you will also have regular access to the professional advising staff in the CSM Student Services. To find the name and contact information of your faculty mentor, please contact the CSM Student Services or your major department.
We encourage you to proactively build rapport with our professional academic advisors as well as your faculty mentor for academic and career guidance throughout your time at Cal Poly. We are all here to partner with you in your educational journey of earning a bachelor's degree from Cal Poly!
