Associated Students (A.S.) approved a resolution Tuesday in support of academic advising awareness posters for undergraduate students.

Undergraduate students find it difficult to obtain information as they progress in units, which leaves students taking the wrong classes and spending more time in school to make up for it.

According to institutional research from campus, the percentage of undergraduate students currently over 120 units is from 2.22% in Social and Behavioral Sciences up to 9.73% in Engineering and Computer Science.

Arts, Media and Communication have 3.24% students above, while Business and Economics, Education, Health and Human Development and Humanities are in the 4% area. Mathematics is the second highest with 6.09% of students exceeding 120 units.

A.S. encourages academic advising offices in all departments to implement the use of posters in department display cases to helps students become more aware of academic advising in all steps of their progress at CSUN.
