Returning Student Information

Welcome Back to CSUDH!

Once a Toro, Always a Toro!

Recognizing that students must step out sometimes, CSUDH welcomes its returning students back to campus, where our advising staff will support you from the time you reapply until you finish your bachelor’s degree and graduate.

If you are a returning CSUDH student who wants to finish your bachelor’s degree, you must first attend a Returning Toro Workshop. For more information, please visit and search Returning Toro Workshop.

Please join through the workshop link at least 5 minutes before the start of the workshop. Students who join late will need to attend another workshop.
