Early Alert Academic Advising


Welcome to Academic Advising in CLAD

Academic Advising is a CLAD service for students who need additional support to succeed academically. Advising appointments are offered throughout the semester.

The academic adviser is an ESL instructor who meets with students in half-hour appointments to identify their needs and help them develop a plan for achieving their goals. Students can make follow-up appointments as needed.


To ESL Instructors

When you identify students who can benefit from extra support, ask them go to CLAD to make an appointment for academic advising. CLAD staff will help them sign up for an appointment.

You don’t need to make a referral in writing; however, please feel free to email any background information you think will help the adviser work with your students. For referrals, contact cladstaff@mail.ccsf.edu.

If you wish to have a written record of your referral(s), feel free to use (and modify) the referral letter here.


To ESL Students

You may make an appointment to see the academic adviser at any point in the semester to discuss whatever concerns you have about your classes.  For Spring ’19 appointments, contact cladstaff@mail.ccsf.edu.
