Undergraduate Advising

All BME undergraduate students must see their Academic Advisor every semester before registering. Advising periods begin a few weeks before registration.

Information about Advising and about Departmental events is communicated through the departmental mailing lists (BME Undegraduates, BME Graduate Students, BME Alumni). All BME students are encouraged to join the appropriate mailing list.

Undergraduates need to bring a copy of all transcripts from other colleges attended the first time they see an advisor. (Yes, even though you already had your transcripts mailed to the University, you still need to bring in an unofficial copy to your advisor.) You will not be allowed to register if we do not have a copy of your transfer transcripts on file in the department office.

Important Dates for Spring 2022

  • The class schedules will be posted on MySJSU on April 11, 2022
  • Advanced registration for Continuing Students begins on April 26, 2022

Book an appointment with your Advisor

All advising appointments can be made on Spartan Connect. Please see advising hours below.

(Please follow the link Spartan Connect to make appointments. There is also a Spartan Connect Guide [pdf] that teaches you how to log in to Spartan Connect and how to create an advising appointment)  

Please remember to cancel your current appointment if you are not able to make it, before creating a new appointment.  

If you are not able to cancel your appointment or have difficulties scheduling an appointment on Spartan Connect, please contact  biomedical-engineering@sjsu.edu

 

Submit your advising form electronically

Undergraduate students need to complete and submit their advising form for Fall 2022. You’ll be prompted to enter your information and your advisor’s. After that, you will be able to fill out a DocuSign form where you should indicate the classes you are planning to take in Fall 2022, and your anticipated workload. Please do that before you meet with your advisor, even if you are not sure about your plan, so when you meet your advisor already has a snapshot of your situation.

Meet with your advisor on Zoom at the time of your appointment

This is the final step, in most cases. If your meeting is on Zoom, you will have to use the Zoom link shared by your advisor in Spartan Connect. (SJSU authentication is required to log into the Zoom meeting.)
You will be placed in a waiting room until your advisor is ready to meet with you. It is possible that you may have to wait few minutes.

At the meeting your advisor and you will reach an agreement on the classes you will be taking in Fall 2022. At the end of the meeting, your advisor will remove your advising hold.

Please bring with you:

A copy of your Study Plan (see below) with classes completed and classes in which you are currently enrolled clearly identified.

Current Roadmaps (Study Plans)

Older Roadmaps (Study Plans)

Students should follow the Study Plan corresponding to their catalog year (typically, that is the year when the student joined SJSU, either as a freshman or a transfer student). Deviations from the Study Plan (e.g. to take a new course added to later catalogs) should be discussed with an Undergraduate Advisor.
