Please note that REACH is for quick advising questions or to schedule appointments with a College advisor.
REACH Virtual Drop-In is only available to current students and newly admitted students who have completed orientation. Prospective students in need of advisement should contact UCLA Undergraduate Admission directly with their questions.
Students will not be admitted into REACH Virtual Drop-In during the last 10 minutes of each session.
You will sign-in to a virtual lobby where you may experience a short wait for an advisor to join you. When you enter the REACH drop-in lobby, you will be greeted by a student staff member. Once available, you will be connected with either a Peer Counselor, College Academic Mentor or professional staff member. As REACH Virtual Drop-In sessions are first-come, first-served, wait times for an individual advising session during peak periods can be longer than 30 minutes.
Please note that this link will only be staffed during the above hours.

Please click the link in the email to join the appointment at your scheduled time. Please note that you will be required to show your Bruin ID or other photo identification at the start of the appointment.

If you do not have access to a computer with a camera, we can assist you with a dial-in audio Zoom advising appointment. Please contact us through the CAC Message Center account to schedule a 30-minute dial-in audio Zoom advising appointment. Once your audio Zoom advising appointment has been scheduled, an advisor send you a message through UCLA Message Center with information that will allow you to dial-in to your appointment. You will be asked questions over the phone to confirm your identity prior to the start of your advising appointment.
Message us with your questions through our UCLA Message Center account . When we receive your questions we can determine if you need to call to make an advising appointment
