As an undergraduate ChAD major, you can expect to receive excellent advisement in the various major options we offer. Our advising is designed to help students develop and follow a plan for completing their course requirements.
The University requires all students to see a major advisor during their first year at SJSU. ChAD faculty strongly encourage you to meet with an advisor in your first semester at SJSU. You must be a currently-enrolled ChAD major to make an advisement appointment.
