With diverse educational and professional backgrounds, our advisors are well equipped to assist students as they develop their interests and explore new opportunities. All of the advisors work closely with their counterparts in student services across the campus, and they are ready to help students find what they need so they can get the most from their time at UCSB. Altogether, our staff represent more than 100 years of successful advising experience.
Departmental versus College Advising
UCSB students are expected to work closely with their departmental advisors on matters involving major requirements; academic advising on all other subjects (e.g., general education, graduation, residency) falls primarily to the advisors in the College advising office (Cheadle Hall 1117). To get the most out of UCSB’s advising resources, students are encouraged to develop relationships with both College and departmental advisors.
