Advising appointments are made through Spartan Connect only.
Want help with GE classes?
Want to change your major?
To physics or within physics - talk to me. (Change of Major form)
From physics to anything else - contact Dr. Jamie Alea from COSAC (https://www.sjsu.edu/cosac/staff/academic-advisors/index.html) for transferring to majors within the College of Science or relevant advisers in other Colleges, who will advise you on the change of major, and lift your hold if necessary.
Between physics B.S., B.A., and B.A.-Teacher-Prep - talk to me first, then fill out the change of major form in the physics department main office.
Want to graduate?
You will not be able to graduate without the major form and the application for graduation. Those are two different things that need to be completed separately.
Want to figure out if BA or BS degree is right for you?
Information about all degrees, including all minor degrees at SJSU is found here.

Want to declare physics or astronomy minor? - Find information here:
If you are interested in the physics/astro minor you have to first complete the Phys 50/51/52 series. Then you have declare the minor. Fill out the paperwork given on the physics website above and send it to me. With that, you'll be able to take the upper division physics/astro classes needed for the minor.
