The mission of the First Year Seminar is to ease your transition to university life and study. If you enter CSUMB with fewer than 30 transferable credits, you will take First Year Seminar during your first semester. You will learn about the CSUMB Vision, the programs that make this university unique, and services and resources available to you.
When you complete First Year Seminar you will have the beginning of an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) that charts your progress toward fulfillment of your personal, academic, and professional goals through your first two years at CSUMB. The remainder of your academic plan
will be competed when you enter your major.
