Major and minor advising is offered by faculty members in each department. Some departments assign advisers; others provide lists of advisers and permit students to choose their own adviser. Contact the department for referral to an adviser.
The Advising Center is staffed by professional and peer advisers committed to providing guidance and information to help undergraduate students have a successful college experience. Information regarding advising programs is available on the university website, www.sfsu.edu/~advising. Along with general academic advising information, the Advising Center provides the following services:
Undeclared Majors. Academic advisers in the Advising Center help students make informed and satisfying decisions about academic goals that are best suited to their interests and needs. Workshops, resource materials, and appointments are available.
New Student Programs. Orientation is a must for all incoming students. Orientations are scheduled during the summer and winter prior to each semester. Information materials regarding Orientation are sent to all newly admitted students.
Reentry and Readmit Students. The Reentry Admissions Program is an alternative admission program available to students who have never attended SF State, who meet certain criteria, and who are not otherwise admissible to the university as undergraduates. This program is a special admissions program that is by referral only. Students who attended SFSU in the past (readmit students) may make an appointment in the Advising Center to discuss the possibility of readmission.
Undergraduate Education continues in Planning Your Studies at SF State.
