The Advising Resource Center (ARC), in SF State’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 Tutoring and Academic Support Center (TASC); 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 undergraduates; 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.  Current students must make an appointment using the button below. If you are a legacy student, please send an email to achieve@sfsu.edu or to krubin@sfsu.edu to make an appointment with us!

If you are a new student for Fall 2021, you will meet with us in group sessions ONLY.  If you make an appointment, we will cancel it & redirect you to the group sessions.
