Academic Advising

General Education (GE) Advising

For GE advising, please meet with a GE advisor in the College of Social Sciences Student Success Center , located at Clark Hall, Room 240.

Overview

Advisors assist students with questions about curriculum, course sequencing, and fulfilling requirements for graduation. We HIGHLY recommend students meet with their advisor at least once per semester. Majors and minors are advised by professors assigned by their last names during office hours either in person, via Zoom or by appointment. Please see below.  Assignments and hours vary per semester.

Students should contact only their assigned faculty advisor for advising issues and inquiries.

If you are meeting an advisor to process university paperwork, please bring the following to your advising session:

  • Appropriate forms
    • Ex: change of major/minor, minor contract, substitution form, etc.
  • All college transcripts
    • this is especially important if you are a transfer student since we cannot view your records from the Registrar’s Office. It takes the Registrar at least 2 semesters to input the data into MySJSU.
  • Additional paperwork that needs to be attached to University petitions
    • Ex: transcripts, statement of purpose, doctor’s notes, etc.
