How We are Serving You During the COVID-19 Environment

To further limit the spread of COVID-19 within our local community, effective immediately, Registrar's Office staff will be working almost entirely remotely to provide services to our stakeholders. San Francisco State University campus remains open for necessary University operations, but individual offices may be closed. You can see a list of open university offices on our website at news.sfsu.edu.

While we may not be able to see you in person during this period of primarily remote operations, we want you to be aware of some options for receiving service from the Registrar’s Office. You can reach us by emailing records@sfsu.edu, or by visiting registrar.sfsu.edu for more information. You can also call us during our phone hours at (415) 338-2350: Weekdays, 10 AM - 12 PM & 1 PM - 3 PM.

We know you may need to submit forms, documentation, or other paper documents during this period, and have identified some options to help. Broadly speaking, we will accept a form as signed if submitted directly from your SFSU student email account. Some details on specific forms are available on our website, registrar.sfsu.edu. One Stop will be closed until further notice, but we have a dropbox available in the One Stop area in the Student Services Building. There is also a drop box in the Administration building next to the Bursar’s Office in the Administration building.

(including course degree requirement substitutions and authorization to amend major/minor courses). 

Students who need to submit these forms should send an electronic copy from their SFSU email account directly to their advisor or department office.  No wet or paper signature (i.e. signed with pen on paper, the old-fashioned way) is needed for forms that are submitted via SFSU email account.  The advisor or department office will then review and forward through any required approval workflow.  Once complete, the final approver (Chair) should send directly to the Registrar’s Office graduation-related account, regweb@sfsu.edu. Graduate students who intend to graduate Spring or Summer 2020 should contact the Division of Graduate Studies at gradstdy@sfsu.edu

NOTE:  We are extending the deadline to apply to graduate in order to appear in all May 2020 Commencement material to March 20, 2020.
