How to Find GE Courses Offered Each Semester

Core GE, SJSU Studies, American Institutions, MUSE courses, and other information about General Education Requirements and courses can be found online in the schedule of classes each semester. You can find static links to this webpage for each semester at the links below:

Please double check the year for each semester, as they are each updated yearly when the new schedule of classes comes out (therefore the link to Summer may link to the GE information for LAST summer, not this coming summer if the new schedule of classes has not yet come out).

How to Place and/or Lift a Hold on Student's Account

In order to be able to place and lift holds on a student's account, faculty and staff must attend a training put on by the CMS Training Team. Quick steps on how to place/remove holds may be found at the IT Help Desk Tutorials


How to Run a My Progress report


In order to run a My Progress report (a portion of Peoplesoft that allows faculty and staff to see which requirements a students has met, and those he/she has not yet met) faculty and staff must attend an Academic Advising training put on by the IT Help Desk. Instructions on running the report may be found on IT Help Desk tutorials

If you find an error with a student's MyProgress, please file a discrepancy report so that the appropriate staff can look into the issue.
