*** Many questions/issues can be addressed by contacting us on ZotChat and we do strongly encourage students to try ZotChat first, especially for quick questions (prereqs, excess units, course offerings, etc.). More complex issues may be better handled thru an advising appointment (in-person or Zoom). ***

How to schedule an appointment with an Advisor....

You can now use UCI Appointments to schedule a Course-Planning Appointment or a General Advising Appointment (beginning Sept 27, 2021). Both appointment types offer in-person and remote (Zoom) appointment options.
Appointments cannot be scheduled within the next 24 hours. At least 24 hours notice is required.

When booking a Course-Planning Appointment, you may select "any available" advisor or choose a preferred advisor.*

When booking a General Advising Appointment, the only choice will be "any available" advisor.*


For all in-person appointments, please arrive at RH 134 (Rowland Hall, room 134, First-floor) approx 3-5 minutes before your appointment. You may ring our Doorbell to let us know you are here and wait for assistance. Please be patient.

For all remote (Zoom) appointments, the meeting URL will be e-mailed to your UCI email, so be sure to check that before your appointment and please do not be late. We ask that you log in approx 3-5 minutes before your appointment time and be prepared to wait in a Waiting Room until your advisor is available. 

Students who fail to appear for an appointment, or are late, may have their appointment canceled--at the discretion of the advisor, and/or may be prevented from booking future appointments for some time. It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to inform us if you cannot attend your appointment for any reason and to Cancel your appointment using UCI Appointments.
