Welcome to the Advising Hub

The SF State Advising Hub is your one-stop-shop for your advising needs.  If you are looking for a resource center, information about probation or advising for your first semester, you are in the right place!

The information provided here is not to replace a professional advisor.  For a successful path to graduation at SF State, we highly recommend that you connect with major and GE advisors often — if you are pursuing a minor, you will also have a minor advisor.

Academic Advising Directory

Seeing an advisor at least once a semester will help you stay on track towards graduation!


To limit COVID-19 spreading within our community, academic advisors are meeting with students remotely. To see an advisor through a Zoom Drop-in appointment, choose the advising location (college resource center or other office) and then go to their website to connect to their drop-ins. If you would like to schedule an appointment, you can use the link below. After scheduling your appointment, you will receive en email confirmation and additional information about your remote appointment. 

See the"How to Schedule an Appointment" article if you need assistance.
