The Accessibility Resource Center advisors are not academic advisors.

Once you declare a major, an advisor in your department is assigned to plan academic requirements. Current advising information is available on the CSU, Chico Website. Students are encouraged to visit the Career Center (SSC 270) for assistance in deciding upon a major or minor.
