Undergraduate Academic Advising

SPRING 2020 - Remote Advising:

Monday - Friday: 9:00 - 11:30AM and 1:00 - 3:30PM

The Undergraduate Advising Office will be closed beginning March 17th until further notice. We are available during our drop-in advising hours by email commadvising@comm.ucsb.edu
 

Our prefered method of communication is email. Due to the high volume of appointment requests, video and voice advising via Zoom is extremely limited.

To request an advising appointment via Zoom:

  1. Check to see if your question is already answered on our Undergraduate FAQs. We cannot approve an appointment request if your question is answered there.
     
  2. Email commadvising@comm.ucsb.edu
    Subject line: Comm Advising Appointment Request - (Your Perm #)
    Body: Include as much detail as possible about the specific questions you'd like to ask. If you do not include enough detail, your appointment request will be denied
     
  3. A Comm Advisor will reply to your email with the answers to your questions. If the question cannot be answered via email, you will be sent a link where you can schedule a virtual appointment with a Comm advisor.
