It is ultimately the responsibility of the student to fulfill all degree requirements and make application for graduation prior to the semester in which the degree is to be received. Degree check sheets are available to assist the student, but the SJC catalog is the ultimate authority.
A number of courses are offered only in the Fall or the Spring semester; some courses are only offered in alternating years. Failure to enroll in classes at the appropriate time will delay your graduation! Please see the Degree Check Sheets and carefully check the class schedule prior to pre-registration.
The Department Chair is initially your assigned advisor. Early in the Fall semester you will be assigned to your applied (or related field) instructor as an advisor. You should communicate with your advisor on a regular basis. Please do not go to another advisor to be enrolled in classes!
