Welcome!

The Baskin School of Engineering is located in the Baskin Engineering Building, Rm. 225 (far west end of building). 

Beginning the 2017-2018 academic year we have restructured our advising hours to better serve students.   The following is a list of our hours and the different types of advising available to you and what you can expect to be helped with during each category. 

Counter Hours

Hours: Monday - Friday 9:00 - 11:30am and 1:30 - 4:00pm

During our Counter Hours students can speak to a peer advisor regarding:

  • Academic Plans
  • Schedule Adjustments
  • Questions about Major Qualification Criteria
  • Enrollment Troubleshooting
  • Questions about Petitions such as Course Substitution Petitions, Waiver or Exception to Policy, change of Major

Concentration or Curriculum Catalog Year


Students can also drop off the following forms during Counter Hours: 

  • Individual Studies/Senior Thesis
  • Petition to Extend Enrollment
  • Part-time Final Quarter Approval
  • International Student Forms
  • UC Extension/Open Campus Department Approval
  • VA Benefits

    Because petitions may not be reviewed and approved immediately, it is generally a good idea to submit petitions a minimum of a week in advance of the deadline.

Drop-In Advising

October 9 - December 15:  Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays 1 :30 - 4 :00pm and Wednesdays 9:00 - 11:30am

**Please note there will be no drop-in advising on Wednesday, December 13th**

Please note that we no longer allow students to reserve a time ahead of time to meet with a staff advisor during drop-in.

Drop-In Advising is intended for questions that will take no more than 15 minutes. If you think your advising question will take more than 15 minutes, please refer to the Appointments section.  Students  can meet with a staff advisor about:

  • Declare a minor
  • Sign VA forms
  • Review and sign academic plans
  • Answer Major Qualification questions

 

Appointments

Appointments are intended for more complex questions.

Students must come to Counter Hours  to schedule an appointment with a staff advisor.  Students can meet with a staff advisor in an appointment to get help with the following:

  • EAP forms
  • Readmission (If you are trying to readmit to UCSC as an SOE major and need a signed academic plan for  your readmission application please email advising@soe.ucsc.edu first).
  • Concerns about major eligibility
  • Students referred to a staff advisor as part of the major declaration process

    If you have an advising question that is not listed above, and believe that your question may be better suited for an appointment, please come in to Counter Hours to discuss your needs with a peer advisor.

    Please note that all advising appointments must be made at least one day in advance! It allows the advisor to prepare for your meeting so you can maximize your time together.   

    Due to the nature of our academic cycle (major declaration, orientations, meetings, etc.) our advising ability will vary therefore we recommend that students continue to check this website, our Twitter page, or call or email first to confirm our hours if coming to campus specifically for advising needs.  We are closed on all university holidays.

    We can also be reached by email at advising@soe.ucsc.edu.  Can't wait for a response?  Come in to the advising office during our open hours!

The Baskin School of Engineering is proud to be a member of the NCWIT Academic Alliance and a sponsor for the Bay Area Affiliate of the NCWIT Aspirations in Computing Award.
