Advising

Welcome to our Advising page! Every student in our program has an assigned advisor. Undergrads are assigned according to last name. Grad students in the MA program should consult with grad coordinator Prof. Kate Gordy. SF State Scholars can double dip! Undergrads, please see the list below for your assigned advisor and their office hours. If those hours don't work, or if you want to see someone in particular, you're also welcome to attend any other advisor's office hours. It's always a good idea to meet with an advisor one-on-one early in your career at SF State to make sure you're on the right track and are aware of all opportunities.
