Undergraduate Students

Prospective Freshman and Transfer Students: Attend an SJSU orientation session or for transfer students (Transfer Information Program [TIP] session). Once you meet for general advising, you will be assigned an academic KIN Dept. advisor who will work closely with you through to the time you graduate. 

All freshman and sohpmore advising questions, should go to the CHHS SSC.

All international experience questions should go to the CHHS SSC.

All students needs to complete the Student in-Take Form (link above) to be assigned an advisor if you have not already been assigned. 

During Fall & Spring: If you are a current undergraduate student, meet each semester with your assigned KIN advisor to discuss coursework, progress, career planning, and to resolve any problems that arise along the way. Remember to file for graduation one year in advance of the semester you plan to graduate! For those interested in Physical Therapy, additional information is provided here.

During Summer: (June 1 through Aug 20) Students should contact the CHHS SSC, with questions about undergraduate or minor advising.
