Advising Appointments

We encourage you to see your major department advisor for help with your class schedule, academic questions, and future plans (Graduation and graduate school programs).

Our appointments are limited to students who do not have a major department advisor, CLA Beach Pledge Program freshmen or transfers, and pre-majors who have received an email to see us about progress to degree. Drop-in advising is available for any Liberal Arts student.
