In the Foundations of Excellence summary for advising and mentoring it notes many of our students declare a major prematurely, without adequate guidance about appropriate majors that would align with their goals and skills, contributing further to low engagement, underperformance, and attrition. Improving our lower-division curriculum, advising for undeclared students and career counseling will address this need. The goal of a peer mentoring program is to support First Year Students in their transition to SF State, encourage successful academic and personal development, promote student involvement and enrich the connections of SF State students to each other, the college and the SF State campus.
Academic Affairs, together, with support from SSGI funding, continues to invest numerous efforts into the Undergraduate Advising Center to help undergraduate students enjoy a successful college experience. There is a wide array of support available to our students so they have a clear academic path to graduation.
