Academic Advising

JS Picture

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

 

Please review the Advising Google Slides presentation, created by Dr. Kinney, for Justice Studies and Forensic Science major coursemap information.

 


Advisors assist students with questions about curriculum, course sequencing, as well as 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 the last name on a drop-in basis during office hours or by appointment. Assignments and hours vary per semester.

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

 

Graduation Application Process

Once you have completed almost 90 units, complete your JS Major Form or FS Major Form, entirely along with the SJSU Graduation Application Form. Email both forms and your unofficial transcript(s) to your assigned faculty advisor. You may also print them out and bring them to your advising appointment.

 

Advisors have online ZOOM office hours. Find your assigned advisor below.
