Students who are unable to come to drop-in advising hours may email an advisor their questions or request a phone or Skype appointment.
Please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions before scheduling an appointment. Note that major declarations are not processed in the first 2 weeks of the semester nor during heavy enrollment advising times (late October through November in Fall and mid-March through late-April in Spring). Newly admitted students entering in the Fall semester will have many of the questions answered during Golden Bear Advising and Orientation.
