Graduate students may be required to take the Graduate Essay Test (GET) depending on their
department requirements. Check with the Testing Center (HSS 206) for exam

the Advising Center (ADM 212, 415-338-2101). Visit their website for more information at:
http://www.sfsu.edu/~advising/newstu.htm .

Graduate students will need to contact their specific academic department directly for academic
advising assistance.

Students admitted into a certificate program offered through the SFSU College of Extended
Learning will need to contact an academic advisor in their specific certificate program in order to
discuss which classes they should take each semester.

Class Registration - Priority Registration
To get your first choice of classes, you must register during your PRIORITY REGISTRATION
DATE. This date will be emailed to your SFSU email account in June (for Fall) or October (for
Spring). You have a small period of time to register for classes during your priority registration
date which will be in July (Fall) or December (Spring). Once your priority registration period
ends, you can register only in the evenings between 8pm and 12 midnight . When open
registration begins in July, you can access the system at any time.

In order to register, you must FIRST pay tuition, purchase health insurance, and submit proof of
MMR in advance!

http://www.sfsu.edu/~bursar/fall2010/fees/fee_payment_deadline.html). If you miss your fee
payment deadline, allow at least one (1) working day up to five (5) working days after payment of
fees before registering during an upen registration period.

Graduate students in the College of Business will be charged a MBA/MSBA Program Fee at a
rate of $1,200 for Full-time students (6.1 or more units) in addition to State University fee, local

   INTENT TO REGISTER (ITR)

When you submit the ITR, you are letting SF State know that you want to attend, and SF State will begin to send you important
information. However, submitting an ITR does not obligate you to attend and you can still change your mind without receiving any
kind of penalty.

Submit ITR at http://www.sfsu.edu/admit so that we can give you all the information that you need. You will be assigned a Priority
Registration date after you complete ITR. You can start to register for classes on your Priority Registration date if you first clear all
your registration holds.

   REGISTER FOR AND TAKE PLACEMENT TESTS (ELM, EPT, AND ESLPT)

The California State University requires all students to take the Mathematics (ELM) and the English Placement Test (EPT) if they have

considered for EPT exemption unless you are from a country where English is the official language. You can find whether you are
required to take the ELM and/or EPT exams on the right hand side of your Notice of Admission. You can also find this information via
MySFSU.

All undergraduate students at SF State are required to take English classes to meet written English and general education
requirements. SF State provides two tracks of English classes: English Composition Program for native English speakers, and

WHAT IS REGISTRATION HOLD
All students have registration holds. You must clear all the registration holds before you can register for classes. We strongly
encourage you to register for classes on your Priority Registration date and time, or you may have difficulty finding classes later on.

   CLEAR IMMUNIZATION HOLD

California State law requires that all students receive immunization against Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR), and Hepatitis B (If you
are 18 years or younger). To clear the immunization hold, fax either one of the documents listed below to the Registrar’s Office at
+1-415-338-0588

    1.   Completed and Signed SF State Immunization Form. This form can be downloaded at
         http://www.sfsu.edu/~admisrec/forms/regforms/mmr.pdf

    2.   Doctor’s certificates in English showing that you have received the above mentioned immunizations. Please include your full
         name and SF State ID number

The hold will be cleared soon after the Registrar’s Office received your fax. If your hold is not cleared, contact the Registrar’s Office at
+1-415-338-2350.

   CLEAR HEALTH INSURANCE HOLD

Because of the high cost of medical care in the U.S., all international students must have adequate medical insurance. To clear the
health insurance hold, do one of the following:

    1.   Purchase the California State University (CSU) sponsored health insurance at http://www.csuhealthlink.com . See instruction
         about how to purchase CSU health insurance online, visit

    2.   Provide proof of your coverage to Student Health Services (SHS) for approval. Your alternate insurance must have the same
         coverage as the CSU sponsored health insurance. See detailed instruction at:
         http://www.sfsu.edu/~shs/Health_Insurance/How_to_Clear_Your_Registration_Hold.html. The reviewing process can take
         up to 3 weeks.

Diversity
San Francisco State is rich with people from different backgrounds, cultures, ethnicities races and social classes. Our
students, faculty and staff bring different values, experiences, lifestyles, philosophies and attitudes to the campus. Students
who choose San Francisco State for its diversity and social consciousness often acknowledge it can be more difficult in
practice than it is in philosophy. If you are not prepared to be exposed to a dynamically diverse environment, you may find
the campus environment overwhelming and perhaps a bit intimidating.
You may select one other person as your roommate. If you have already selected a roommate please indicate their
information below and ask that they indicate your information on their Roommate Selection. Placement will only be made if
both persons have indicated each other as roommates and both are confirmed for the same community.

I have already selected a roommate their information is as follows:

                                     NEW RESIDENT               ROOMMATE SELECTION

Room Changes
Roommate difficulty should first be handled by the floor’s Resident Assistant. The RA will facilitate a discussion intent on
finding resolution. Hasty room changes are discouraged in favor of a mediation approach. Residents may be required to
participate in mediation before a physical move takes place. Due to administrative reasons, Room Change Request
forms will not be honored until the second week of the semester.

Roommate Selection
University Housing makes efforts to match like-minded individuals within living situations; however, we strongly encourage
residents to participate in finding their own roommate via personal websites. Below you may volunteer your information to be
shared with the community you selected on page 2 or 3. Likewise, you will receive contact information of others in your
community, with which you can conduct your own roommate search. If you find your roommate please notify University
Housing with your name and University ID AND your selected roommate name and UID# via email before JUNE 30th, 2010.

Future residents will be able to contact each other for the purpose of finding a compatible roommate online. A list of
residents’ first name, e-mail address, personal website, and answers to the questions on the previous page will be safely
released to students CONFIRMED to live in the same community. (For First time freshmen Only)

If you chose to not conduct your own roommate search and allow University Housing to select a roommate for you, you will
be matched with another person within your assigned community. University Housing does not guarantee a perfect match,
although that is always our hope. Close living situations are a source of stress, for this reason it is essential that you are
honest about your own flaws and expectations. Discuss these issues openly with your roommate. After move-in you will also
be offered the opportunity to build a Roommate Agreement with the help of your Resident Assistant (RA), this document will
help guide you through more difficult living issues.

Check One:
___ Yes, please add me to the list. I’d like my information safely released to residents confirmed to live in my community
for the purpose of finding a compatible roommate.
___ No, DO NOT include me on the list. I will not be contacted by potential roommates, and will be assigned a roommate by
University Housing based on my answers to the questions on the previous page.

            PLEASE COMPLETE AND RETURN THIS FORM TO THE UNIVERSITY HOUSING OFFICE

       Residents will not be allowed entry into University Housing without having completed this form.

                               Do you know about Meningococcal Disease?
Meningococcal disease is caused by Neisseria Meningitidis bacteria. The two most common forms of meningococcal disease
are meningitis, a bacterial infection of the fluid and covering of the spinal cord and brain: or septicemia, and infection of the
bloodstream. Meningitis has other causes as well, the most common being viral infection.

How common is Meningococcal Disease?
Meningococcal disease is uncommon. In the US, each year there are about 2500 cases (1-2 cases for every 100,000 people)
with 300 to 400 occurring in California. Of 14 million students enrolled in colleges nationwide, approximately 100 acquire
meningococcal disease each year.

How Is It Diagnosed?
A diagnosis is commonly made by growing the bacteria from the spinal fluid or blood. Identifying the bacteria is important for
selecting the best antibiotics.

Are College Students At Increased Risk?
Overall, undergraduate students have lower risk than a non-student population (1.4 cases per 100,000 people per year.)
However, college freshmen living in dormitories have a modestly increased rate (4.6 cases per 100,000 people per year).
Reasons for this increase are not fully understood, but are probably related to living in close proximity to each other.

How Are Meningococcal Bacteria Spread?
The bacteria are transmitted from person-to-person in secretions from the nose and throat. They are not spread by casual
contact or by simply breathing the air near an infected person, but require close contact. The bacteria can live outside the
body for only a few minutes: so if the germs contaminate a desk or book, they soon die and won’t infect a person who
touches it later. As many as 2 in 10 people carry the bacteria in the back of the nose and throat at any given time, especially
in winter. Why only a very small number of those who have the bacteria in their nose and throat develop disease, while
others remain healthy, is not understood.

How Can I Avoid Getting Meningococcal disease?
You can protect yourself by maintaining good health and hygiene. As a general recommendation, you should wash your
hands frequently. Avoid sharing materials that make mouth contact, such as eating utensils, bottles, cigarettes, or lip balm.
Contact a healthcare provider immediately if you are in close contact with someone who is known or suspected to have
meningococcal infection.

Is The Vaccine Recommended For College Students?
Currently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices and the
American Academy of Pediatrics do not recommend routine meningococcal vaccination for college students (even in
dormitories). Meningococcal vaccination is recommended for persons at above-average risk for meningococcal disease,
including persons with certain immune system problems, those lacking a spleen, and travelers to countries where
meningococcal disease is common. It should be considered for college freshmen who will live in dormitories. The vaccine is
comprised of 4 strains of the bacteria, but does not include type B and other strains that account for nearly 50% of
meningococcal cases in California. Protection lasts 3-5 years; boosters may not be as effective as the primary vaccination.
Discuss the risks and benefits of vaccination with your health care provider.

Meningococcal vaccine may cause reactions such as pain or fever. Discuss contraindications and rare but serious side
effects, with your health care provider.
