Advising Tips


  • If you are within your last year of graduating, you must complete a graduation application along with your final selection of courses in order to begin your graduation process. This process is not automatic.

  • Graduation occurs three times a year (December, May, and August), but the Commencement exercise is only once a year in May.

  • If you have attended other colleges or universities, make sure you have sent for official copies of your transcripts.

  • If you cannot locate a copy of your academic plan, contact the Office of Academic Advising for a copy so that you can appropriately plan your schedule.

  • When selecting your classes, make sure you have taken the prerequisites first.

  • Keep your CCSJ catalog; it contains many answers to your questions.
