For advising in American Studies email Cristina Ruotolo at email@example.com.
You may sign up as a major or minor via your Student Center.
- Before you meet with the advisor, please download and study the advising worksheet and fill out as much as you can, using your unofficial transcript as needed. The advisor will help you develop your list of electives, reviewing what you have already taken and helping you plan what to take going forward.
- Get SF State unofficial transcripts from the Student Center link via SF State Gateway. We've found that using Firefox works best when downloading materials from Campus Solutions. (NOTE: the unofficial transcript link at MySFSU takes you to the older version of transcripts that doesn't go beyond Spring 2014.)
- Finally, take a look at your Degree Progress Report (DPR) and take note of any red boxes in the section devoted to your major/minor. There will likely be errors on it, which the advisor can help sort out. Given the degree to which the American Studies major is self-designed, you will need to have the advisor enter your electives list.
To ensure adequate planning of a student's program, all majors must consult an advisor at least once per year.
Students are advised to take CWL 400GW - Approaches to Comparative and World Literature - GWAR as early as possible in the major.
All students in the Comparative World Literature major are urged to acquire reading competence in at least one language in addition to English.

Majors in the College of Liberal & Creative Arts (LCA) should consult with two advisors each semester:
- an advisor in the major and
- a general education and university requirements advisor in the Undergraduate Advising Center
Students who are completing a minor or an additional major should see an advisor in those programs as well.
The Division of Graduate Studies offers counseling and advising regarding issues ranging from applications to graduation.
