General Education Advising

General Education Advising is provided by appointment, except during the drop/add period at the beginning of each term. Drop in advising (10-15 minute answers) is available during Office Hours. Please call the number listed on our contact information below to make an appointment to see a GE Advisor. 

Which General Education courses do I have left to take?

You can find out how many, and which GE courses you have left to complete by looking at your MyProgress Report on MySJSU . It will tell you which GE courses you have completed, and which you still need to take! (Transfer Students' GE info may take a couple of semesters to show up.)


Preparing For Your Advising Session

When you come for advising, please bring a copy of your MyProgress Report, transcripts, test scores and general education certification, if applicable. For more information on how to prepare for your advising session, please visit the Advising Hub Advising Preparation web page.
