Academic Advising Service Updates for Spring 2020 Due to Coronavirus Pandemic
Updated May 29, 2020
The UCR campus is closed through June 19 in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Spring 2020 quarter has begun and instruction is being conducted remotely. Summer Session instruction will also be delivered remotely. These decisions were made in an effort to prevent the spread of the disease, and therefore, all non-essential staff will be working remotely during the campus closure. However, the staff of the CNAS Undergraduate Academic Advising Center are still available to assist you and our services continue to be offered online during this time!
As of now, academic advising will be conducted by:
Email (primary method) - please visit your major's advising page for your advisor's contact information
Email is recommended for direct questions that require direct answers. PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR STUDENT ID NUMBER in all of your email communication with your advisor, as it will help advisors to pull up your academic record faster and respond to your email quicker. Emails responses may take between 1-3 business days.
Zoom "online drop-in sessions" as well as 30-minute appointments
All students have a Basic Zoom account by default. For more info go to https://keeplearning.ucr.edu/zoom
Advisors can set up 30-minute Zoom appointment for students who need them but they have also started posting “drop-in” availability through My Advising (see instructions below to see your advisor through “online drop-in sessions”)
We understand this is a challenging time in many ways, and we want you to know that we are here for you. We enjoy working with our students and even though the format has temporarily changed to a remote environment, we are no less committed to helping you in any way we can! Also, please note that things can change during this time, such as timelines, policies, options, etc., but we are doing our best to stay up to date to be able to provide guidance to all of you.
We appreciate your patience and understanding.
