ANNOUNCEMENTS

AUGUST ADVISING: DROP-IN/ CALL-IN

August is a very busy time for academic advisors as we work to ensure every student gets the guidance they need before classes start. To maximize our availability and minimize wait times, August advising will be drop-In/ call-In only. Appointments will restart Sept. 12. (While in-person advising is available, we strongly encourage you to call into the virtual queue to be assisted via phone call or Zoom.)

We can help! Check out CSM’s FinancialAidTV for short, easy to digest videos on a wide range of topics, including FAFSA, scholarships, 1098-Ts and much more.

Whether you’re looking for an on- or off-campus job, a paid internship, or a potential career path, College Central Network (formerly Job Connection) is the go-to career posting site for CSM students and alumni.

You can upload your current resume or use College Central Network’s template to create a resume and begin the search for the position that’s right for you. It also includes a video and print library on topics related to getting and keeping the job, such as salary negotiations, attending job and career fairs, and more!
