Newly Admitted Undergraduate Students: Advising

Advisors provide a variety of services and support to guide you through your academic programs. SIS will add a number of campuswide advising tools to support students and advisors, including a new multi-year “Academic Planner,” the ability to schedule appointments online, and an academic progress report.

To Know

  • “Advising Holds” can be removed by academic advisors.

  • “Schedule Planner” helps you create an optimal semester schedule based on your class preferences and scheduling conflicts.

  • “Shared Advising Notes” have been added to facilitate better communication for improved service to students.

  • A new multi-year “Academic Planner” is available so you can work with your advisor to create a multi-year class plan.

  • The “Academic Progress Report” (APR) will allow you and your advisor to track progress toward your degree.

To Do

  • Go to CalCentral and click on your profile picture to view and act on any holds or critical notifications. “Notifications” may include a request to make an “Advising Appointment.”

  • Create your class schedule with Schedule Planner.

  • Check your “Academic Progress Report” throughout the year to see your progress toward graduation, outstanding requirements, etc.

  • Work with your advisor to create and populate your Academic Planner.

  • Consult with your advisor if you have questions.
