Student Resources & FAQs

Jump to Topic:


The CSU Cares Program offers emergency grants for CSU students experiencing financial hardships directly due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding is made possible through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) authorized by the recent Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, as well as existing CSU campus-based resources.

This is an emergency grant and not a loan. It does not have to be repaid.

Tips for Virtual Learning

Academic Advising & Holds

Academic advising remains available while the University operates remotely. Academic advising is an important resource to help you make progress toward graduation, especially as we approach the registration period for fall 2020 classes.

  • You may make an appointment with an advisor in your major by contacting that advisor directly via email. In these special circumstances, we recommend that you copy the department chair on your email to ensure that your advising needs are met in a way that fits your major department’s advising process.
  • You may make an online appointment with an advisor in the Academic Success Center. Making an appointment for advising with the Academic Success Center might be especially useful to you if you:
    • Have not yet declared a major
    • Have questions about general education or graduation requirements
    • Are on academic probation
    • Are a pre-nursing student
    • Are in need of any additional advising support

Helpful links:

In an effort to reduce obstacles to registration, most departments are not placing advising holds for the fall 2020 registration period. If a hold is placed by your department, seek an advising appointment as outlined above. Any holds on your account that need to be cleared prior to fall 2020 registration will be placed March 27. On myStanState, you can see which department placed a hold by clicking on the ‘details’ link.

Summer and fall 2020 registration periods holds are not being placed for failure to provide proof of MMR vaccination.
