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

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)

Advising Appointment Hours (subject to change):
Monday: 10:00am – 11:30am; 1:30pm – 3:00pm (Remote)
Tuesday: 1:30pm – 3:00pm (In-Person)
Wednesday: 10:00am – 11:00am; 1:30pm – 3:00pm (In-Person)

Friday: 9:00am – 11:30am; 1:30pm – 3:00pm (Remote)

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 email at 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 timeslot. 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.
