Our Reception hours are from 9:00-11:30am and are the time for drop-off or pick-up of forms, answering brief general questions, or signing in on the sign in sheet for same-day afternoon Express Advising.

If you would like to speak to an advisor, our peer and staff advisors are available to answer questions on a drop-in basis during our Express Advising hours 1:30-4:00pm*.

If you cannot make our Express Advising hours, other advising is available by appointment only.

Need help deciding which classes to enroll in?

Students just getting started in their School of Engineering major should attend one of our Major Qualification and Planning workshops to get assistance with understanding courses and GPA required to qualify for your major, review course requirements for your major, and get assistance with your academic plan for your major. You are also invited to visit our Getting Started With Engineering website, with links to major requirements, advising summaries, and class recommendations for first year frosh students. Still have questions? Come to our Express Advising hours, 1:30-4:00pm M-F in Baskin Engineering 225 to speak with a peer or staff advisor or send us a message at advising@soe.ucsc.edu and we'll be happy to assist you!
