Roadmap (SF State Bulletin: Roadmap)
Your major advisor answered a few questions to assist you with your first semester courses — see below.
- General Information
- Transfer Student Information
- Freshman Student Information
- College Resource Center (Advising)
|When should I first meet with my major department?||As soon as possible.|
|How will I be assigned to a major advisor and how do I contact them?||There is no protocol for assigning students to faculty advisor. Students will typically come to the Chair’s office or they contact a professor they’ve taken classes with and with whom they feel comfortable.|
|Where can I find information about major advising?||
You can go to our firstname.lastname@example.org location, or contact our AAS Gabriel Segovia-Mcgahan in EP 103.
We do have it posted in EP 103 office hours and phones, emails etc for our faculty.
|Does this major require any pre-work from me before I attend orientation or register for classes?||Not applicable.|
|What should I do if my major core and/or prequisite courses are full?||Make LTNS core courses a priority when signing up, but also, if they are a graduating senior they can petition the professor to be admitted into a highly-enrolled class.|
|Is there anything else I need to know about starting in this major?||Students should have their forms completely filled out before they meet with the advisor/faculty to expedite the advising session.|

|Are there any prerequisites to these upper division courses for the major?||There are not any prerequisites but most of these courses fill up pretty fast, please make them a priority.|
|Are there any registration blocks or holds in the system for this major, and if so, what do I do/who do I contact to clear them?||Not applicable.|
|Does this major have an approved Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) roadmap?||
|Are there any courses I should take first as a Freshman to get started in this major and/or are there any lower division GE course requirements that I can take that will also count toward this major?||
