College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

How Advising Works
Students receive all advising from entry to the university to graduation in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS). Academic advising in CLAS is a shared partnership between students, staff, and faculty. CLAS utilizes a dual-advising system which means all undergraduate students with a declared CLAS major will have at least two advisors to guide them through the completion of their degree: a CLAS Academic Advisor and a Faculty Advisor. CLAS Academic Advisors advise students on CU Core, CLAS, and general graduation requirements; registration procedures; and academic policies. Faculty advisors advise students on major/minor requirements. Students’ degree progress and graduation plans are monitored and approved by both advisors.

Students can identify their assigned CLAS Academic Advisor in the “Advisor” box in their Student Center on UCD Access. Faculty Advisor contact information for each academic program is available in the CLAS Advising Office and online.

 

Please note: students who are still deciding their college major (Liberal Arts-Undeclared), along with pre-architecture, pre-business, & pre-engineering students, are advised through the Center for Undergraduate Exploration and Advising (CUE & A).

 

Who Do We Advise?
CLAS Advisors advise the following populations of students:

  • All students with declared CLAS majors
  • Undergraduate Teacher Education majors
  • All students with declared pre-health tracks (e.g. pre-nursing, pre-med, etc.). Please note: pre-health students should also work with a Health Careers Advisor regarding pre-health prerequisites and information. Visit Health Careers Advising.

3​.​​ Prepare for Advising

 Tips for Meeting with your Advisor

Planning to meet with your academic advisor? Great, it’s time to prepare! Advising is a collaborative relationship of shared responsibility between the student and the advisor. Just as advisors prepare to meet with students, you should prepare to meet with your advisor.

Steps to Prepare for Your Academic Advising Appointment:

  1. Schedule your advising appointment early and in advance. Advisors have busy schedules, especially during peak registration times. Scheduling an appointment early (weeks in advance) helps ensure you can see an advisor in a timely fashion and also gives you time to prepare. Some advising offices do allow stop-ins, but these are often only to answer quick questions; for more in-depth conversations, appointments are required.

  2. Review your Degree Audit in UCD Access. Please see the Degree Audit​ section of this website for more information on how to use this helpful advising tool.

  3. Review notes, handouts, and information from prior advising meetings (if applicable). If you have met with an advisor previously, be sure to review this information in advance and bring it with you to your advising meeting so you and the advisor can start where you left off last time.

  4. Make a list of questions. Remember, there are no stupid questions! Your advising appointment is a great time to get your questions answered. If your advisor cannot answer the question, they will point you in the direction of someone who can.

  5. Prepare a tentative schedule or list of classes in which you are interested. By working on a tentative schedule in advance, you will create a starting point for discussing registration with your advisor. 

Relax. You are now prepared for your advising appointment, and your advisor will be ready to jump-in and help you from here.​ Please contact the advising office if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment. Life intervenes sometimes, and we get that. Just let us know as soon as possible.
