Need Advising Help?
Each student in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics has an assigned academic advisor. This assignment is based on whether you are fully declared or a pre-major, and your particular major within CNSM. If you are a pre-major then contact your pre-major advisor; otherwise please contact your major advisor.
If you are a freshmen or sophomore with under 50 earned units, please see Declaring a Major for instructions on how to change your pre-major.
If you are fully declared in your major, please contact the relevant major advisor.
Please contact the respective CNSM major advisor.
Please contact University Outreach and School Relations if you are wanting information on The Beach. Outreach is available to help you make an informed decision about your college choice.
