Schedule an Advising Appointment
PLEASE READ OVER ALL STEPS BEFORE BOOKING YOUR APPOINTMENT. My fall advising appointments are scheduled on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:30am-12:00pm (PST). If you see a different time, please adjust your Google calendar setting. Read about changing your Google Calendar timezone at https://support.google.com/calendar/answer/37064?hl=en.
I do not discuss general education (GE) advising. All GE advising questions should be directed to a GE advisor in the ACCESS Success Center (Clark Hall Room 240), http://www.sjsu.edu/access/.
STEP 1: SELECT A 30-MINUTE TIME SLOT
You are allowed to choose one appointment time slot each month to ensure each Communication Studies student has the opportunity to see an advisor or instructor. You are responsible for canceling your appointment 24 hours prior to your appointment time.
STEP 2: BRING APPROPRIATE FORMS
COMPLETE AND BRING YOUR "COMM ACADEMIC PLANNER" with you to your next advising appointment. You may download this form from our advising page, http://www.sjsu.edu/comm/about/advising/index.html.
All forms noted below can be found at http://www.sjsu.edu/registrar/forms/.
HOW TO BECOME A COMM MAJOR OR MINOR?
You need to attach an unofficial transcript, personal statement, graduation application, and minor graduation paperwork to your “90 units or more” change of major/minor form. You only need to attach an unofficial transcript when completing the “fewer than 90 units” change of major/minor form.
NEED EXCESS UNITS?
You will need to bring an EXCESS UNITS PETITION to your appointment if you meet the requirements and date regulations.
NEED TO APPLY FOR GRADUATION?
Read and complete "Ready for Graduation?" section on our Advising page.
IF YOU HAVE A MINOR, you will need to meet with your minor advisor to complete all minor paperwork before you apply for graduation with your major advisor. Please bring your minor completion paperwork in a SIGNED SEALED ENVELOPE along with your graduation application and your completed My Major Plan to your advising appointment.
ALREADY APPLIED FOR GRADUATION?
You will need to pick up your GRADUATION PAPERWORK from the department office (HGH 108) before meeting with a major advisor. You should also contact your GRADUATION EVALUATOR if you have not received your GRADUATION WORKSHEET.
NEED TO CHANGE YOUR GRADUATION DATE?
Complete a GRADUATION DATE CHANGE FORM and bring it to me during my office hours. I will sign your form quickly, so there is no need to schedule an appointment.
