Important message about advising during this time: the UCR campus continues to follow the Governor's stay-at-home order so advising staff continue working remotely.  Instruction is also being conducted remotely through Fall 2020.  However, the CNAS Undergraduate Academic Advising Center staff are still available to assist students and our services continue to be offered online during this time.  Please see the information below on how to access advising services during this time.
