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?||We would suggest for freshman to meet with our College Student Resource Center (CHSS SRC) in HSS 254 and for transfer students to meet with the department as soon as possible, preferably at the beginning of the semester.|
|How will I be assigned to a major advisor and how do I contact them?||Meeting with a major advisor is typically mandatory for all students. Students declared as Interior Design (ID) majors are assigned alphabetically to an advisor in their area. The best method of contact is to email to request an appointment or physically sign up for an appointment outside of the faculty office.|
|Where can I find information about major advising?||On our department website, under the "Advising" link on the Student Resources tab.|
|Does this major require any pre-work from me before I attend orientation or register for classes?||
Before registering for classes, students should consult with an advisor, the SRC program handout, and/or roadmap, and follow the recommended course sequences. Freshman we ask to meet with our Academic Counselors at the SRC in HSS 254 as they are quite knowledgeable regarding program prerequisties/requirements.
|What should I do if my major core and/or prequisite courses are full?||If a course is full, the student should attend the first several days of the class as drops and adds will occur.|
|What upper division courses should I take in my first semester as a transfer student for this major?||
If the student has not taken the equivalent of ID 240, ADM 260, ID 242, and ID 245 these should be taken first.
If the courses have been taken, then enroll into:
(1) ID 340GW; and/or (2) ID 343; and/or (3) ID 345; and/or (4) Major elective; and/or (5) an upper division general education (GE) course (UDB, UDC, or UDD with SF State Studies).
|Are there any prerequisites to these upper division courses for the major?||
ID 340GW Prerequisites: Restricted to upper-division Interior Design majors; and completion of GE Area A2.
ID 343 Prerequisites: Restricted to Interior Design majors; ID 240 and ID 242; or consent of the instructor.
ID 345 Prerequisites: Restricted to Interior Design majors; ID 240 and ID 242; or consent of the instructor.
Major electives: Prerequisite(s) vary, please consult the course description of each course to make sure prerequisite(s) have been met before enrolling in elective.
Upper division GE courses (UDB, UDC, UDD) Prerequisites: 60 units completed and successful completion of GE Areas A1, A2, A3, and B4 or consent of the instructor.
|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?||
Yes, prerequisites are enforced in the enrollment system. If prerequisites were taken at a school not listed on assist.org, students should meet with major advisor to determine course equivalency.
If prerequisite is indeed fulfilled, but a student is still having enrollment challenges, the student should contact the Professor and request an add code.
|Does this major have an approved Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) roadmap?||No.|
|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?||
(1) Lower division GE Area A-E/LLD, except GE Area C1 (Note: Area C1 will be fulfilled with ID 240, a required course taken during 2nd semester).
|Are there entry or prerequisite requirements for these Freshmen courses?||
|Can any of my AP or IB tests count toward requirements in this major?||No.|
