CNAS Advising

The CNAS Undergraduate Academic Advising Center helps students understand the policies and procedures pertaining to their academic careers.  All CNAS students are assigned an Academic Advisor who provides them with the guidance they need to navigate their degree path as well as the university as a whole.  Advisors are also here to direct students to the proper on-campus and off-campus resources.

  • Declare or change your major
  • Declare a minor
  • Repeat a class for the second time (third time taking)
  • Take a course or courses outside of UCR during the school year and/or during the summer
  • Take a leave of absence from the university
