What is Advising?
Academic advising is a process in which students and academic advisors work together to achieve the student’s educational and personal goals. Typically the student and the advisor collaborate to create a broad understanding of program/major requirements and university and DAAP policies and procedures, as well as to develop course schedules in order to fulfill degree requirements and student interests. Academic advisors can also identify additional campus and community resources as needed to enhance the student’s tenure, both personally and academically, at UC.

Schedule an Appointment
The DAAP Student Affairs Team is currently working remotely. The best way to schedule an appointment is to use the Starfish scheduling tool (Starfish How-To Guide).
While DAAP Advising is not in the office to answer your phone call, voicemail is checked on a regular basis.
Email (Current UC students): If you need a virtual appointment, please schedule with us through Starfish.
Email (Prospective students): Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students will be serviced on a first come, first serve basis and will wait in queue until a DAAP Student Affairs representative is available.
When using the drop-in function, please keep the following in mind:
- When you join the queue, please enter your name and email address so we have a way to send you documents if needed.
- If you join from a desktop, please connect using your browser, instead of app.
- If you are on a phone or tablet you may be required to download the CISCO Webex application in order to video in.
- Drop-ins will follow the 15 mins or less guideline stated below.
