Virtual Drop-In/Express Advising

Please Note: We will begin offering virtual drop-in/express advising on October 4, 2021. In the meantime, please schedule an appointment by logging onto appointments.ucdavis.edu or email us at caesadvising@ucdavis.edu and we will assist you in connecting with an advisor.

Starting October 4, 2021, we are piloting a virtual drop-in platform for “express” advising. Advisors are available to answer quick questions via Zoom on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

Mondays–Fridays, 2–4 p.m., excluding holidays

Log in to Virtual Drop-in Hours (Please note: you must be signed into your UC Davis Zoom account to access the session.)

 

Virtual drop-in appointments are about 15 minutes long. If you would benefit from a longer conversation with an advisor, we encourage you to book an appointment through the Advising Appointment System.

 

After you click on the Zoom link above, you will be directed to a waiting room. The meeting host will add your name to the virtual queue and will admit students into the meeting on a first-come, first-served basis. Once in the meeting, the host will ask about your questions and direct you to a breakout room where you can chat with a Undergraduate Academic Programs dean’s office advisor. If you need more time, the advisor will help you schedule a follow-up appointment.
