Check your UCM email for a message on 8/21 from your 2020-21 BAC advisor with a link to their appointment calendar and information about walk-in advising hours.
Your BAC advisor's appointment calendar link is also listed below.
Academic advising appointments in Fall 2020 will be on Zoom.
Appointments are 30 minutes and must be scheduled through the online Calendly system at least 24 hours in advance.
Use your UC Merced email when you schedule an appointment.
Appointments fill quickly since each advisor works with about 350 students. To make the best use of your advising appointment, arrive a few minutes early and bring a list of your questions. During an appointment, your BAC advisor can help you:
- Prepare an academic plan for current or future years, including optional summer courses
- Discuss major, minor, and career interests
- Identify academic support resources
- Talk about ways to complete remaining GE requirements
- Identify academic or co-curricular opportunities that support your personal and career goals
- Develop ideas for next semester class registration
- Review questions you have on your MyDegreePath audit
If you schedule an appointment and need to cancel it, use the online Calendly system to cancel in advance.
Be nice to your fellow Bobcats: cancel in advance so another student can use that appointment slot.
