Academic advising at UCLA is a partnership between the student and their College and departmental advisors. Students should work with both their College and departmental 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.

College Advising
Designed to help students plan their academic careers at UCLA, including satisfying degree requirements, planning their programs, deciding on a major, thinking about graduate school and career plans, and considering how they can best engage at UCLA.
