COVID-19 Update

Dear Computational & Systems Biology Students, Faculty, Staff, and Community,

Effective September 23rd, 2021, the CaSB Undergraduate Office will be offering services in a hybrid format. The CaSB counselor, Annelise Werhel, will be working on-site Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, and working remotely Tuesdays and Fridays. Please note that, even if the physical office is closed, business will continue as usual–just in a remote format. As always, you can contact the CaSB Undergraduate Office via email ( or phone during business hours.

For advising, meetings will be by appointment only. On Tuesdays and Fridays, all advising appointments will be remote via Zoom or phone. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, students may select either an in-person or remote appointment depending on their preference. Appointments can be booked via MyUCLA here.

Whether onsite or remote, our office remains committed to supporting students, staff, faculty, and the campus community.

Academic Update For Fall 2021 – Spring 2022

Please know that CaSB will only be accepting letter grades for all pre-major, major, and CaSB minor coursework, effective Fall 2021 and forward. All temporary Pass/No Pass policies that were in effect between Spring 2020 – Summer 2021 are no longer in effect, and we have returned to standard grading policies. Please run your Degree Audit Report via MyUCLA and ensure you are taking the appropriate courses for your major/minor for a letter grade. As a reminder, UCLA has extended the deadline to Friday of Week 9 (normally Week 6) to change the grading detail back to a letter grade if you had it set for Pass/No Pass.
