Our Mission

The Academic Counseling Center for Excellence in the Social Sciences (ACCESS) is a hub that can assist students with their academic advising, as well as provide tutoring in such key social science skills as writing and statistics. ACCESS welcomes student leaders and student organizations and clubs within the College of Social Sciences to make use of our facilities for meetings, workshops, and student get-togethers.

Stop by ACCESS for:

  • General education advising
  • Answers to questions about academic policy
  • Academic advice or just tips to navigate your way around SJSU
  • A quiet place to study (and/or do group projects)
  • A chance to meet fellow social sciences majors and peer advisors
  • Help with changing majors
  • Workshops and presentations (writing, statistics, graduate school application, etc.)
