Our Mission

Update 3/26/20:

The Bobcat Advising Center has moved to remote advising for 2019-20 students.  All appointments and walk-in hours are held on 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.
