Welcome to the Advising Resource Center (ARC)

The Advising Resource Center (ARC), in SFSU’s College of Liberal & Creative Arts, provides multiple support services to students. At the ARC, you can get information about general education and other requirements for your degree and about learning resources such as the English Tutoring Center and Learning Assistance Center; find out about exciting events and student clubs sponsored by the Associated Students or departments within the College; get help with scholarships, petitions, campus solutions and graduation documents for both undergraduates and graduates; learn about financial aid and scholarships; explore post-graduate plans (e.g., careers and graduate study); get advice on resolving concerns and complaints; and last but not least, enjoy our computer lab.

We look forward to meeting you. To see an advisor, please make an appointment by calling (415) 338-1486, sending an email to achieve@sfsu.edu, or stopping by HUM 112. You can also come for advising by visiting HUM 112 during our drop-in hours: Monday-Wednesday, 3-5 p.m.

The ARC is open Monday–Thursday 9 a.m.-7 p.m., and Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
