Block Scheduling for First Year Students

Fall Term

First year students in each of the majors in the College of Science and Mathematics will receive block schedules for fall quarter. The office of the registrar makes every attempt to block students into full-time units (at least 12 units) for fall term.

Winter and Spring Terms

Students will also receive a block schedule for winter and spring, but the number of units that students will be blocked into may vary depending on major and course availability.

Career Support

Career Services can help you explore career options, prepare for your internship/job search, connect with employers, and more!

If you are a pre-health student, please visit the CSM Advising Center. We would love to discuss your health career plans and support your journey to becoming a competitive applicant.
