Bobcat Advising Center
Operating remotely in Fall 2020

Our Mission

The Bobcat Advising Center (BAC) is the academic advising home for all first year students in every major, all lower division undeclared transfers, and all continuing undeclared students in any class year.

We promote student success through academic advising appointments, walk-in advising, workshops, and connecting students with appropriate resources.

Our team is here to support your educational journey as you work toward your personal, academic, and career goals.

BAC will be operating remotely in Summer 2021.

Welcome to both our new and returning Bobcats!





Success Tips

Fall 2021 first years received individualized course recommendations on your UC Merced email between Thurs. 6/24 - Fri. 6/25.

Fall 2021 first years had assigned registration times for fall semester classes between Mon. 6/28 - Thurs. 7/1.


Enroll in 12-17 units during your assigned registration time each semester to have the best selection of classes.

Registration remains open 24 hours a day after your assigned time for schedule adjustment.

Read your UC Merced email each day.  Log on to CatCourses each day when classes are in session.

Schedule an appointment with your BAC advisor each semester after you have arrived on campus.

Appointments for Fall 2021 admits will begin in fall semester.
