Advising Appointments: Advising meetings will be by appointment only via Zoom–no drop-ins.

Advising Appointments: As of 10/16/23, there will not be any academic advising appointments until an interim Academic Advisor is appointed. Updated information will be provided here once made available. 

Students may schedule an appointment via MyUCLA here: — can search for either remote appointments (Zoom), student option (either Zoom or in-person), or both (all available appointment types/first available). Currently there are no available academic advising appointments until an interim Academic Advisor is appointed.

Currently there are no available academic advising appointments until an interim Academic Advisor is appointed.

If, for any reason, you prefer a phone appointment, please specify “Phone Appt” in the “Description” section when booking a remote appointment.

Appointments are scheduled for 20 minutes, but may last up to 30 minutes.

If you are currently on a different time zone and all appointment times are in the middle of the night your time, I am happy to accommodate appointments outside of my normal hours at a mutually agreeable time. Please contact me via Message Center to setup an appointment outside of 9-4 Pacific Time.

Please be mindful of other students when booking appointments and, if needed, please cancel or reschedule your appointment at least 2 hours in advance so another student can have your time slot. Please be on-time to appointments. If you are more than 5 minutes late, your appointment will be considered a “No-Show” and you will need to reschedule. If a student misses (or cancels with less than 2 hours’ notice) three or more appointments in a quarter, students will lose access to the online booking system and will have to email the counselor to setup an appointment.
