Welcome to our Advising page! Every student in our program has an assigned advisor. Undergraduates are assigned according to last name; Graduate students should consult with Graduate Coordinator Professor Amanda Roberti.

Undergraduates, 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.

Majors in the College of Liberal & Creative Arts (LCA) should consult with two advisors each semester: 

(1) an advisor in the major and

(2) a general education and university requirements advisor in the Undergraduate Advising Center

Students who are completing a minor or an additional major should see an advisor in those programs as well.


Visit the Division of Graduate Studies, which offers counseling and advising regarding issues ranging from applications to graduation.
