Preparing for my advising appointment

Do you want to make the most of your meeting with an advisor?

Check the following helpful resources. 

SFS Academic Planner

 (Use SFS planner in conjunction with your specific "MyRoadMap") 


A Major MyRoadMap is your guide to the classes to take each semester to complete your degree in a timely manner! 

Unofficial GE Checklist 

(Use GE Checklist worksheet to keep track of the GE classes you need to take.)

GE Requirements and Courses 

Gives you information about the General Education program at SJSU, as well as which of the currently offered courses meet General Education requirements.


The Articulation website provides information about how credit earned outside SJSU transfers to SJSU. You can find information about transferring in GE requirements, course-to-course transfer, and credit by exam (such as AP or IB). We encourage students to review their own articulation before meeting with advisors so that questions for advisors are more specific. Remember that we must have official transcripts or test scores reported in your file before you can be given credit.
