About CEOAS Advising

CEOAS advises undergrads considering or majoring in Climate Science, Environmental Sciences, Geography & Geospatial Science, Geology, or Ocean Science. See Expectations of Advising and advising-related Resources for Undergraduates.

You may meet with your advisor at any time during the year. Many students must make an appointment each term with their advisor to get a new registration PIN (e.g. Honors College, first-year students, some receiving disability access services, receiving veteran benefits, and athletes). Everyone must have an advising appointment to get a registration PIN for Fall term, for which you need to have a draft course plan laid out for the coming academic year.

If you have already been working with an advisor outside of your alpha assignment, or would like to switch advisors, you are welcome to do so

Ecampus students who need an appointment outside of Monday-Friday 8am-5pm Pacific Time: Please email your advisor to inquire about possible alternatives
