First Year Students

The Bobcat Advising Center is the academic advising home for all first year (freshman) students in every major.

Schedule an appointment with your BAC academic advisor at least once each semester.

During the appointment, you will have the chance to discuss your academic history (college courses or AP/IB exams already completed), choice of major and career, GE requirements, academic and co-curricular activities that support your goals, summer plans, intended graduation date, and much more.

We are here to help you throughout your first year at UC Merced!
