UCLA College Advising

If you are an undergraduate in the UCLA College, we encourage you to consult these pages to educate yourself about the rules affecting your academic career and to explore the many resources available to you here at UCLA. Please remember, however, that each student’s situation is unique, and that you should use this site as a supplement to, rather than a substitute for, meeting with your UCLA College academic advisor.

UCLA College Advising Units

There are four principal advising units administered by the UCLA College:

Please check the upper right hand corner of your Degree Audit for your advising unit.  Since each unit has been created to address the respective needs of its target population, it is very important that you know which advising office you should go to in order to meet with a full-time counselor or process UCLA College petitions and related requests.

For a full list of the special programs offered by the UCLA College, please visit the UCLA Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE)  homepage.

Partnership between College and Departmental Advising

Academic advising at UCLA is a partnership between the student and their College and department advisors. Students should work with both their College and Department advisors not only to ensure they are completing all degree requirements and graduating on time, but also to maximize their time at UCLA by exploring co-curricular opportunities.
