Advising Checklist

Please bring the following to your first advising appointment:

  • Your SF State Unofficial Transcript (available in your Gateway Student Center)
  • Your Unofficial Transcripts from your other college (if you are a transfer student)
  • An Undergraduate Major and Minor Course Substitution/Waiver Form (if you are looking to substitute a course from another college for a DES requirement or elective)
  • Course Description, syllabus and digital samples of work completed in the course you are looking to substitute
  • Blank advising contract

If you have received permission to substitute a class for a DES requirement or elective from your advisor and you don't see that class on your Degree Progress Report, please make an appointment with them and bring the Substitution form with you. This is how we make sure the Registrar's office has a record of the substitution.
