Major department advisors answered a few questions to assist you with your first-semester class selection.
|When should I first meet with my major department?||Would suggest for freshman to meet with our College Advising Center [CHSS SRC — Student Resource Center in HSS 254] and for transfer students as soon as possible at the beginning of the semester.|
|How will I be assigned to a major advisor and how do I contact them?||Students [declared in ID] are assigned alphabetically to an advisor in their area. Best method of contact is email, contact to request and appointment or sign up for an appointment outside of the faculty office.|
|Where can I find information about major advising?||http://cfsd.sfsu.edu/content/student-resources|
|Does this major require any pre-work from me before I attend orientation or register for classes?||
Students may register for courses without meeting with an advisor. But, we do have an advising process and ask that all upper-division/transfer students meet with an academic advisor to develop an advising folder that includes a semester by semester course plan. Freshman we ask to meet with our College Advising center [CHSS SRC — Student Resource Center in HSS 254] as they are quite knowledgeable regarding program requirements.
