Spring 2016 News
- SEE YOUR ADVISOR IN MARCH AND APRIL -
it is not too early to think about class choices for Fall 2016.
Academic advising should focus on which classes to take next, in which combination, relative to your personal schedule/commitments and your career/educational goals, etc., NOT on building the class schedule.
This is the least busy time of the term for advising officesAll Faculty and all Advising Centers get really busy when hundreds of people wait to meet until the new schedule comes out in May. Also, at the end of the term, Faculty Advisors are working on writing and grading final exams, final papers, etc.
Here are some tips:
You do not need to wait for the fall class schedule to be published. Look at the Fall 2015 schedule for an idea of what classes were offered when. Most will not change much. http://info.sjsu.edu/web-dbgen/soc-fall-courses/all-departments.html
Plan your top 4-5 classes, but also plan a couple of backups/alternates in case the top 4-5 fill before you get to register.
Check your “Holds” on the top right of your Student Center and take care of any business before your registration appointment, preferably before the end of Spring classes while everyone is still on campus. Remember that most Faculties are not on duty in the summer.
Avoid long lines, use your online resources to prep for your advising appointment, and get more personalized and in-depth advising. See your advisor NOW.
