Welcome to CNAS Advising

Welcome, UCR students! When it comes to academic support, it's essential to know who to meet. Upon admission to UCR, you were assigned a dedicated academic advisor who is here to assist you on your educational journey. To find your assigned advisor, you have two options: check your Student Profile on Rweb or visit your CNAS Major page. Learn more about meeting your assigned advisor here.
The CNAS Undergraduate Advising Center offers two convenient options for student advising appointments: a 10-minute and  20-minute appointment option, both available in virtual and in-person formats. Academic Advising appointments are the preferred method of discussing academic questions or concerns with your advisor. You can schedule your meeting with your assigned major advisor at Learn more about making advising appointments here.


The CNAS Undergraduate Academic Advising Center is proud to offer General Undergrad Advising Check-Ins (GUAC) for students seeking quick and straightforward advising assistance. Located in Pierce Hall, our advisors are available throughout the day for drop-in sessions. Learn more about seeing an advisor in person for GUAC here.


E-mailing is a convenient way for students to get in contact with their academic advisor. Please expect responses within 2-3 business days, which may extend during peak advising times. If you have urgent or detailed questions, consider scheduling an advising appointment with your assigned advisor or visiting us during GUAC advising hours.
