There are two ways you can submit:

-If you can’t find your desired major/minor or are having technical issues, email EthnicStudiesAdvising@sfsu.edu and request an advisor submit paperwork for you to registrar. Please include your SID and requested program.
Yes! Join the ESAC Zoom link to meet with an advisor during available drop in hours. You will be placed in a waiting room along with anyone else waiting to see an advisor. Folks will be brought into drop in advising sessions one by one on a first come first served basis. If your questions require more time, we can always schedule a follow up appointment. If you do not want to wait, you can also schedule an appointment.
Your degree progress report has the most accurate information that advisors also check.
-Log into your student center
-Under academics; find the drop down menu and select “degree progress report”
-After selecting that, hit the blue button and wait for the report to load.
-GEs that need to be complete will be marked with RED boxes.
Your DPR can also now show you what you need for your major and minor in the College of Ethnic Studies. The DPR does not replace advising, but it can be helpful if you have a quick question on what you might need while you wait to meet with someone. Make an appointment with an Advisor, faculty advisor, or department chair if you would like transferred units or courses outside of the bulleton considered for your major.
