About Cal State LA - ECST Student Services

Welcome to the College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology (ECST) Student Success Center (ESSC)! Our mission is to provide empowering educational opportunities to nurture student academic, professional, leadership, and social development. We do this by developing collaborative relationships with academic departments within our college, campus resources, and community partners to strengthen the students’ learning experience.

For the College of ECST Student Success Center, students come first! The Student Success Center team is composed of committed staff members, student facilitators, and peer advisors dedicated to maximizing your college experience.

Our primary responsibilities include facilitating the transition from high school to college, assist first and second-year students with academic and personal advisement, building community within our college while nurturing a non-threatening environment that provides students with a “home-away-from-home” experience, connecting students to academic preparation programs, student leadership organizations, faculty, staff, campus and community resources, scholarships, career and professional development opportunities.

Our services are offered through several academic preparation programs:
Summer Transition to ECST Program (STEP)

Pre-College Outreach Programs
ECST Placement Services
