Advising and Frequently Asked Questions
Advising for CCS Majors and Minors
EFFECTIVE 3/13/20, all face-to-face advising for CCS majors and minors will be temporarily suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Email and phone advising will continue.
Phone advising by appointment is reserved for our majors and minors only. Appointment slots are currently available on Thursdays between 11:30-12:30 and 3-4 PM. Please email the undergraduate advisor, Dr. Maria Ibarra at [email protected], with a phone appointment request 48 hours in advance.
Email advising is very useful for a form signature request or a general question about the major.
For general advising questions not related to the major, please contact the university’s Office of Advising and Evaluations. Virtual advising sessions (and phone) are available to assist you with questions regarding General Education requirements, progress towards graduation, course planning, and understanding advising tools and resources. https://advising.sdsu.edu/advising/seeing_an_adviser/virtual-advising

Instructions: If you wish to declare CCS as a major or minor, please fill out top part of the appropriate form then e-mail it to me for my signature. I will then sign and return to you so that you may submit it to the Registrar’s office.
