Mandatory Advising for Biology Majors

Steps for advising follows.

Step 1

Get familiar with our website!

Step 2

Fill out the advising worksheet and then print it out so you can bring it with your proposed next term schedule to your advising appointment.  You can find the worksheet here: http://biology.csustan.edu/Biology/BiolAdviseStudent/.  Advisees that show-up without their advising form and tentative schedules will be asked to reschedule their appointment.

Step 3

Signing up for an appointment with your adviser.  This is done online through the Biological Sciences Department web site. The advising link on the left in the Main Menu will lead you to the advising information page and the schedule link: http://biology.csustan.edu/Biology/BiolSched/.

To log into both sites you need to use your Stanislaus State student ID number and first name.  For the advising signup sheet, you will be directed to times that your adviser has available.  Enter your email address and phone number in a time slot you want to reserve and click the sign up tab to submit your appointment.  Remember your appointment. Once you sign up for one time, you cannot sign up for another.  If you miss your appointment you must contact your adviser directly for a new appointment at their convenience.  If you have to reschedule, you must call Renee in the main biology office at 667-3476 at least 24 hours before your scheduled appointment.  After your schedule is reset, you can then go online and reschedule.  If you have not contacted the office 24 hours before your appointment, you will have to reschedule with your adviser at their convenience.

If you log into the signup site and there are no times listed for your adviser, please contact your adviser directly.  Their emails can be found on the faculty and staff directory listed here.

If you have problems logging into either site, please contact Renee Brown at rvbrown@csustan.edu or 209-667-3476.
