Advisement Center

WH A-220

(310) 243-3538

The University Advisement Center provides academic advising for new freshmen, undeclared majors, admission exceptions (special admits), and facilitates requests for exceptions in the General Education Program. Academic advising is a process that helps students clarify educational objectives, goals and choices. Academic advising assists students in achieving their potential by helping them understand themselves, use University resources, and explore career choices.

Students who have declared a major generally receive advising in their major department. However, the Advisement Center is open to all students who have concerns about academic regulations or procedures, remediation requirements, graduation requirements, community college course equivalencies, concurrent enrollment and other topics. Specialized assistance for students on academic probation and subject to disqualification is provided.

University Advisement Center advisors want all students to make optimal use of the excellent and varied educational resources on campus. Therefore, for unresolved advising questions, concerns, or problems, call or visit the Center where advisors will provide assistance or appropriate referrals.
