COVID-19 Update: We want to let you know that our CSE advisors are still here for you when you need us. However, to ensure we are doing our part to "flatten the curve" and keep you and our staff safe during this global pandemic, we are moving to remote advising until further notice. Current students may contact us via the Virtual Advising Center (vac.ucsd.edu) or email@example.com. We are still offering advising appointments which can be conducted via Zoom videoconference or phone. To schedule an appointment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Advising Appointments and most Drop-In hours are reserved for CSE Majors.
Non-CSE Majors and CS Minors are welcome to visit us on Friday mornings (weeks 3-10) and contact us through the Virtual Advising Center (https://students.ucsd.edu/my-tritonlink/tools/).
