Welcome to the Advising Resource Center (ARC)

The Advising Resource Center (ARC), in SF State’s College of Liberal & Creative Arts (LCA), 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; find out about exciting events and student clubs; 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.

Academic advising is available by chat, e-mail, Zoom, phone or in person. We are eager to assist you!
