FAST Workshops

Mission

The mission of the Freshman Advising for Successful Toros (FAST) program is to assist freshman students with transitioning and navigating through the university system, in order to encourage optimum academic success.

About FAST

The workshops provide students a space to think critically about their education plan and how to achieve the college experience they are seeking to meet their academic and personal goals. The workshops are facilitated by an academic advisor, who provides advisement on accurate course selection and information critical to students' customized academic plan, along with helpful tools such as the Academic Requirements Report. Additionally, students are directly connected to essential campus resources.                                           

During fall semester FAST workshops, students have the opportunity to:

  • Meet with their advisor and peers in a small group setting
  • Get answers to any lingering questions on college life at CSUDH
  • Understand General Education and Overall Graduation Requirements
  • Become familiar with relevant resources to support student success
  • Learn to navigate and utilize the Academic Requirements Report 

During spring semester FAST workshops, students have the opportunity to:

  • Recognize engagement in student activities as a means to create their college experience
  • Enhance knowledge of university resources critical to student development
  • Ensure proficiency in navigation of Academic Requirements/Degree Audit Report
  • Learn the importance of creating a holistic education plan that is focused on academics and personal growth

What is required of students?

Students are required to attend one FAST Workshop during the fall AND spring semesters in their first year at CSUDH. If a workshop is not attended, a FAST Hold will be placed on the student's account, which blocks course registration.
