BPA Advising and Student Services Center

Welcome to the Student Services Center in the School of Business & Public Administration (BPA) at CSUB. Our office is staffed by four full-time advisors, clerical support, and student assistants. Our mission is to assist you with all student related matters including advising, registration, and grade point average (GPA) issues. 

All students with fewer than 45 units completed are required to have academic advising each quarter prior to registration. Students with more than 45 units completed will have a hold placed on their registration to insure that they receive academic advising at least once a year. You are encouraged to meet with us more frequently to insure maximum progress toward graduation. It is best to make an appointment, however, time permitting we will advise on a walk-in basis.  We recommend that you make an appointment at least one month prior to any registration period.

To schedule an advising appointment:

  • Business Administration majors: Send an email to
    • International Students: Contact Gabriela Ochoa Vega at (661) 654 - 6113 or send an email to
    • CSUB Antelope Valley Students: Contact Lea Antone at (661) 654 - 5010 or send an email to
  • Agricultural Business, Economics, or Environmental Resource Management majors: Contact Dr. Aaron Hegde at
  • Public Administration Majors: Contact Dr. Steven Daniels at

Although we are here to support you, we also have certain expectations of you as a BPA student. These include being aware of important dates such as the last day to add/drop courses, advising and registration dates, and the deadline for filing your graduation application. We encourage you to be proactive in monitoring your progress toward graduation and have provided you with all of the tools necessary to do so on this Website. You should also update your contact information, such as, your preferred phone number, on your MyCSUB. 

We wish you success in your academic career at CSUB.
