How to request an advising appointme     nt   

Welcome to the University Academic Advisement Center (UAAC)! Our center provides advising for two primary groups of students:

  • Exploring Students, including both students starting their academic journey without a declared major and students trying to find a new direction; 
  • Student Athletes, including current undergraduate and graduate team members in need of scheduling assistance and other academic support.

In response to the suspension of face-to-face instruction at Cal State LA in Fall 2020, the UAAC is offering advising remotely this semester. This will enable you to work with your advisor – on Zoom, by phone, or over email - to prepare for registration, to find and declare a major, and to help you stay on track for your degree goals without coming to campus.

ADD/DROP Deadline is Tuesday, September 8, 2020!

This is the last day to add a class and also the "no record" drop deadline. If you need assistace making schedule adjustments, please stop by the UAAC Zoom Room on Friday, September 4, 2020 from 9 AM - 11 AM:

Please be aware that now that the semester has started, many courses now require instructor or department consent to add.
