Our Mission

Update 3/26/20:

The Bobcat Advising Center has moved to remote advising for all appointments and walk-in hours via Zoom.  See the 3/17 email from your assigned academic advisor with more information.  Your advisor will also be available for email advising.

UC Merced is committed to your success during this time of remote instruction and campus operations. For resources to support your online learning, please visit our campus resources or IT Educational Continuity websites. We also want to make sure you are still meeting registration and financial aid deadlines – review the Bobcats Away Checklist for more information!

The Bobcat Advising Center is the academic advising home for all first year students in every major and all undeclared students in any class year.  Our team is here to support your educational journey as you work toward your personal, academic, and career goals.


Success Tip

Current UCM students:  use the Schedule of Classes (open course list) to begin to plan your Fall 2020 classes.  Most current UCM students will have an assigned fall registration date between Mon. 4/6 - Fri. 4/10.

Incoming Fall 2020 first years will receive course recommendations via email in mid-June based on placement exam results (UC Analytical Writing Placement Exam, UCM online math exam, UCM online chemistry exam) and intended major.

Fall 2020 first years will register for classes online from anywhere in the world in late June--and seats in a number of classes will be saved for Fall 2020 admits.
