SPRING 2018 – MANDATORY ADVISING for Admission to Complete Pre-Requisite Courses

There are many benefits to completing credential program pre-requisite courses in a SPRING semester at Sacramento State, such as obtaining financial aid to assist with paying for courses (if eligible) and gaining additional classroom experiences. However, enrolling in a SPRING semester at Sacramento State is not the only option available to you. Please review the options HERE to determine if applying for SPRING at Sacramento State is your best option for completing credential program pre-requisite courses.

If after reviewing the options you still wish to consider applying for the SPRING 2018 semester to complete credential pre-requisite courses, then you must schedule a mandatory advising appointment with a program advisor. To schedule either an in-person or phone appointment with a program advisor, please click HERE. Appointments are available for weekdays between July 10 – August 18.
