Seeing an Adviser

The best time to see an adviser is before you have a problem - "Bee advised, don't get stung!"

The Academic Advising Center is busiest during registration periods and the first weeks of classes. Plan ahead to avoid these busy times. Faculty advisers (major advisers) are not always available during the summer months or between semesters. See the Academic Advising Center's hours and location.

Four Types of Advisers

Academic Advising Center (AAC) Advisers

The Academic Advising Center can help you:

  • Understand graduation requirements
  • Develop an academic plan
  • Evaluate transfer credit
  • Choose or change a major
  • Plan your next semester's schedule
  • Satisfy mathematics and writing competencies
  • Remove probationary status to avoid disqualification
  • File for graduation

Major Advisers

Major advisers are available for each individual major. At www.sdsu.edu/majoradvisers, you can find the faculty adviser for your specific major. Your faculty adviser will help you choose your upper division courses. He or she can also answer questions regarding career opportunities and graduate studies in your major field.

Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) Advisers

EOP advisers are available for EOP students. Advisers can be found in the Office of EOP/Ethnic Affairs, Student Services East, Room 2209, (619) 594-6298.

Preprofessional Advisers

Preprofessional advisers are available for students pursuing a preprofessional career (pre-medical, pre-law, etc.). Contact the adviser assigned to your preprofessional area.

Support Services

Student Affairs offers support services for students with special needs, those enrolled in special programs, or students seeking personal and career counseling.
