Transfer Orientation


Group of SJSU students wearing yellow SJSU shirt.

The Academic Counseling Center for Excellence in the Social Sciences (ACCESS) is the Student Success Center for the College of Social Sciences. You can review all of our departments here.

Here at SJSU, we offer a decentralized advising model. Each college has a student success center that helps their students navigate through general education, graduation requirements, policy and procedures, academic probation, and reinstatement. SJSU also offers department specific advising which helps students with their major related coursework. We highly recommend that our students meet with both their department advisor and success center advisor to ensure they navigate through their academics as efficiently as possible. You can learn more about the differences in advising here.
