Center for Advising and Student Services

Our academic advisors, admissions analysts, and credential analyst are here to help you through the journey of college. We promote student achievement and success through proactive advising, analyzing and processing local, state, and federal documents, and collaborating with all constituents. We provide timely customer service and advocate to increase students’ retention, graduation, and future engagement with Fresno State.

How to meet with an advisor:

By appointment: To schedule an in-person or virtual appointment with an advisor, you may do this online through Bulldog Connect or call (559) 278-0300. In-person appointments are held at the advising center located on campus at 5005 N. Maple Ave, Fresno, room ED 100. Virtual appointments are held on Zoom.

By walk-ins: If you would like to meet with an advisor on a drop-in basis, the advising center provides in-person and Zoom walk-ins. Students are seen on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Walk-ins are in person in ED 100 or on Zoom every Wednesday from 9:00-11:00 am and 1:00-3:00 pm.

Helpful tips and important information:
  • Please have your student ID ready during the check-in process. It will cut down on wait times.
  • All interactions are intended for short 15-minute sessions, therefore, we cannot update roadmaps, provide credential information, or address probation concerns.
  • If you have a hold on your account, it will be removed as a courtesy, and you will be scheduled for an appointment at a later date.

Former Fresno State students who seek readmission after an absence of two semesters or more must file an application for admission through Cal State Apply. Schedule an appointment with an advisor.

Students absent one semester only are exempt from the $55 application fee and will be able to register for the following semester.

Students absent on an approved planned educational leave are not required to file an application for admission and are exempt from the application fee. (See Planned Educational Leave.)

The Degree Progress Report (DPR) is used as an advising tool. It is a system-generated report that shows a student's progress toward completing major requirements, General Education, and remaining degree requirements. Students and advisors have access to run DPR’s. If you need assistance in running or interpreting your DPR, please schedule an appointment with an advisor by emailing, or log in to your student portal at and click on “Bulldog Connect”.
