Transgender Health Services for CSULB Students

  • CSULB Student Health Services is committed to providing gender affirming health services for transgender and gender diverse students. Each student has their own unique needs: medically, psychologically, and biologically. At CSULB, Student Health Services supports our students with an integrative and holistic approach that includes a collaborative team of professionals. Students seeking care will be offered information, resources, referrals, and services to support their health and wellness. All appointments are free in the clinic. The only costs are for laboratory tests and pharmaceuticals. We are able to provide both lab tests and pharmaceuticals at greatly reduced prices.

Trans Care Team / Letter of Support for Surgery

If you are seeking a gender affirming medical procedure, such as surgery, and require a letter of support, the Trans Care Team at the Counseling and Psychological Services office is happy to help. The first step is to call CAPS at 562.985.4001 to schedule an initial consultation with the member of the Trans Care Team. When you schedule the appointment, please inform the person who answered the call that you are seeking an assessment for a letter of support and would like to meet with a member of the Trans Care Team. You will not need to give details about the procedure you are seeking when scheduling the appointment.
