YOUR UC MERCED EMAIL ACCOUNT
After you establish your UC Merced email account, begin to use ONLY your UC Merced email to contact academic advisors, professors, or staff on campus. This will help us respond to you as quickly as possible.
Include your first and last name and UC Merced ID number in all emails.
Due to federal privacy regulations, the Bobcat Advising Center advisors will contact you only on your UC Merced email account.
