How to contact CSE Undergraduate Advising:

Virtual Advising Center (VAC)

  • Current undergraduate students can always submit quick advising questions through the Virtual Advising Center (vac.ucsd.edu). 
    • An advisor will respond with 2-3 business days (sometimes longer during enrollment periods). 
    • CSE Advisors will not advise undergraduate students via email.
    • During peak periods (enrollment), VAC inquiries are prioritized. 
    • Degree Audit change requests take 3-5 business days to process.
  • Current graduate students with questions for undergraduate advisors can submit their advising questions via email (csestudent@eng.ucsd.edu).

Drop-In Advising (fast 15 minute advising sessions)

  • Drop-in advising is best for quick questions (degree audit updates, current/next quarter enrollment, getting Advisor signatures, etc.)
  • Students will be able to sign in to drop-in advising using the Meet with Advisor tool in the Virtual Advising Center (vac.ucsd.edu) without an appointment during the times specified on the calendar below (typically Monday afternoons and Friday mornings).

Pre-Scheduled Advising Appointments (30 minutes)

  • Due to the high demand for CSE major appointments, the Student Affairs Advisors will not be able to accommodate appointments for non-CSE majors. Non-CSE major students should plan to attend drop-in advising instead. Students can contact CSE Advisors through the VAC as well (vac.ucsd.edu).  
  • Advising appointments are best for an in-depth discussion about your educational plan.
  • To schedule an appointment: please email csestudent@eng.ucsd.edu. In your email, please include the following information (you can even copy + paste these bullet points directly into your email):
    • First and Last Name:
    • PID:
    • Reason for appointment: (i.e. to review long-term plan, to discuss enrollment for next quarter, interested in adding a minor, study abroad questions, etc.)
    • Top 3 preferred meeting times: (based on available advising times listed on the calendar below)
