This form is only for new MPPA and MS/ULD students admitted for Fall 2018.

We are pleased to count you among those admitted to the MPPA and MS/ULD graduate programs at Sacramento State.

Prior to enrolling in classes, all new students must receive academic advising. Attending one of our advising meetings not only takes care of your advising needs, but also gives you a chance to meet other new students in your cohort before your first day of class.

Check your MySacState Account
