Before you begin

It's best to know what kind of appointment you're looking to setup before diving in. It's also important to know if your advising department, advisor, tutor, etc., actually uses Spartan Connect for scheduling appointments. If you don't know, check their website.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why can’t I see a specific appointment day or time even though I know it should be available?

The system will not allow students to schedule when there are any time conflicts with an appointment timeslot. This is most commonly seen when a student looks for appointments that cross over times when they are already scheduled to be in class.

What happens if I no-show for an appointment or cancel too close to the start time?

See the information on the Spartan Connect No-Show Policy.

Why don’t I see a confirmation or reminder email for my appointment?

Automated confirmation and reminder messages are sent to your preferred email address (as marked in MySJSU). Review your current preferred email address by navigating to the Email Addresses page at Main Menu > Self Service > Campus Personal Information > Email Addresses in MySJSU.
