Academic Advising - Major Advising
Currently enrolled SDSU transfer students are encouraged to seek advising from the following university faculty/staff advisers:

  • Major Advising - As an incoming and continuing transfer student, one of the best resources for transfer students is your major adviser. Your major adviser will help you choose your upper division courses so that you graduate in a timely manner. This is also a great opportunity to learn about early graduate school preparation, career options and how to engage in other campus or community experiences to complement your coursework.
  • Virtual Academic Advising Center - In addition to meeting with your major adviser, transfer students are encouraged to see an adviser at the Academic Advising Center. There, an adviser 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
