What is Academic Advising

advising

At the College of Letters and Science, we believe that interacting with an academic advisor is one of the keys to a successful college career. Our professional staff offer comprehensive advising and personal guidance to all undergraduates in the College of Letters and Science. Our aim is help you achieve your academic goals and get the most out of your undergraduate experience.

We encourage you to seek out the following advising services:

College Deans’ Office Advising: The College of Letters and Science Undergraduate Education and Advising Office (UEA) offers both group and one-on-one advising. Your UEA academic counselor is one of your best all-around resources and can help plan your academic path and ensure you meet all requirements needed to receive your degree.

Major and Minor Advising: Each major and minor within the College of Letters and Science has staff and faculty advisors who can help ensure you meet your specific major or minor requirements. They are also a great resource for research, internship, and career opportunities.

Peer Advising: In addition to our professional staff, the College of Letters and Science maintains a team of highly trained peer advisors. Peers are current UC Davis students who can offer advice on topics such as course scheduling, major selection, and other academic or administrative issues. Peer advising is available in the UEA office, many major departments, and in residence halls across campus.
