Academic Advising for the Sciences



Hey girl, planning your classes takes time, even when you think you've got it all figured out… trust me, it's always better to get another opinion. Just like getting someone else to do your taxes, it is always beneficial to have an advisor look over your schedule. But sometimes, advisors are constantly booked up or unavailable until after you need to enroll in classes. While it looks rather impossible to meet with your advisor, there are other ways you can plan your class schedules! 


The science advising center? Where was it again?


The “advising center” you are looking for is the College of Sciences Student Success Center located at the GMCS building in room 429! It operates Mondays - Thursdays from 9 am - 4 pm, and VIRTUALLY on Fridays from 9:30 am - 4 pm. Can not make it to any of these times? We got you! The CoS Student Success Center offers evening virtual advising Mondays - Thursdays from 6 pm - 7 pm too! At the CoS Student Success Center, we offer more than just the usual academic support location on campus.


That’s not all, the College of Sciences Student Success Center covers Biology undergraduate advising as well! Biology undergraduate advising located at NLS in room 102; operating Mondays - Thursdays from 8:30 am - 3:30 pm, and VIRTUALLY on Fridays from 8:30 am - 3:30 pm (closed 12 pm - 1 pm).


 The CoS Student Success Center welcomes and supports advising for all majors, however, it is always suggested that you visit YOUR major department advisor for personalized support. 


You can find all this information on the SDSU CoS SSC website as well.
