Classroom to Commencement

Student Success and Advising supports students in their academic journey through innovative and student-centered programs and support services. Student Success and Advising helps students maximize their academic potential and reach their personal goals, regardless of their background. Our aim is to assist students to make timely progress to degree, and as graduates, make an impact in the community and the world.

We are passionate about assisting Sonoma State University students’ persistence towards on-time graduation. We have programs and services to help students succeed at every stage of their journey — from their first class, through navigating their first-year classes and programs, to the Sophomore Experience, to when they need that extra push to graduate on time.

Learn more about The Advising Center, Career Center, the Center for Transfer and Transition Programs, and our Military and Veteran Resource Center, as well as, campus-wide initiatives to help Sonoma State University meet its CSU Graduation Initiative 2025 goals. In addition, we are here to help and tackle common problems many first-year and transfer students encounter.
