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.

Our advisors are available to assist you on a drop-in basis during the first week of the semester. If you need to speak to an advisor, please determine if a drop-in meeting or appointment would best fit your needs (see chart below). Students will be served on a first come, first serve basis.
