How to request an advising appointment        

In response to both the current coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and the suspension of face-to-face instruction at Cal State LA until April 24, the UAAC will adopt a non-face-to-face advising model for the next several weeks.

This will enable you to meet with your advisor – whether via phone or Zoom – to prepare

for registration or major declaration and to help you stay on track for your degree goals without coming to campus.

Please note:

  • If you have an existing advisement appointment, we will be reaching out to you to see if you would prefer to meet with your advisor by phone or Zoom and to confirm the best phone number and email for reaching you.
  • If you have NOT yet made an appointment, you can just tell us “phone” (with your best phone number) or “Zoom” (with your phone and email address) in the “Comments” box when you make your appointment.

Of course, we can also assist you over email Please be sure to include your name, CIN, your phone number, your specific question or concern, and (if applicable) your major or pre-major of interest.
