CNAS Undergraduate Academic Advising Center

Welcome to CNAS Advising

*We are happy to announce that for the Spring 2022 quarter we will offer some in-person advising availability.  Express Advising (i.e., drop-in advising) will continue to be fully online, but advisors will offer both online and in-person options for regular advising appointments.  You can learn more about this on our CNAS Advising Center Updates page. *

The CNAS Undergraduate Academic Advising Center will continue to provide our wide-range of academic advising services via Zoom in order to promote the health and safety of our students and staff.  Please review the information below on how to access advising services during this time.

  • How Can the CNAS Undergraduate Advising Center Help You?
    All CNAS students are assigned an Academic Advisor who provides them with the guidance they need to navigate their degree path as well as University as a whole.  Advisors can also direct students to the proper resources.  Here are some other important reasons why you should visit the CNAS Advising Center:
    • Declare or change your major
    • Declare a minor
    • Repeat a class for the 2nd time (3rd attempt)
    • Take a course outside of UCR
    • Withdraw from the University
    • Readmit back into the University
