2019-20 UNDECLARED STUDENTS (ALL CLASS YEARS):

To contact your BAC academic advisor, use only your UCM email account.  For the quickest response, use your UCM email (not gmail or other) whenever you contact advisors, professors, administrators, or staff on campus.

Email your assigned BAC advisor at their UC Merced email address or call their direct phone number.  Include your first name, last name, and UC Merced ID number in all messages to help us respond as quickly as possible.  Due to the volume of students assigned to each academic advisor, it may take 1-2 business days for a response.
