Stephen F. Austin State University

About Us

Each of our Academic Advisors are trained to provide adequate academic direction to students who seek clarification on SFA's different major options and the career paths that they may lead to. They are collectively and individually interested in your academic success. While we primarily serve undeclared students, any student may visit with one of our Advisors to seek general information on majors or academic policies.
