Before you email us or see us in Zoom, check out our Group Advising Archive here.  There's information about enrollment, summer options, graduation requirements - all kinds of things!  You may be able to get what you need right away, without needing to wait.

Advising Calendar

We're not doing any drop-in advising in Fall 2021, but will have plenty of 15 minute express appointments that can be booked an hour ahead of time - so you can log into Slug Success at 2pm and book a 3pm appointment, for example.

You can see our appointment times below, as well as any upcoming group advising events.

Adviser staffing and availability subject to change; please plan ahead when meeting a deadline.

If you are having trouble viewing the calendar, we recommend you use Google Chrome as your browser. 

Advising Appointments 

Kresge offers 15 minute express appointments for the following reasons:

  • Enrollment
  • Forms/Petitions/Appeals
  • Graduation/Progress Check
  • Leave of Absence, Withdrawal, Return
  • Reason Not Listed/Other

Students can schedule a 30 minute appointment to discuss:

  • Academic Difficulty/Academic Standing
  • Academic Planning/Guidance
  • Choosing/Exploring a Major/Minor
Our in-person appointment availability will begin Sept. 16 and will be limited (only one advisor on campus most days). There should be plenty of availability for Zoom advising. Be sure to choose the type of appointment you want when you're scheduling it - if you choose Zoom, you'll get the Zoom link for that advisor in your appointment confirmation email.

Make your appointment using the Slug Success system.  Please note that you'll only be able to see availability for appointments up to two weeks from now. 

If you're not currently enrolled, you'll need to email us to schedule an appointment; only active students can use Slug Success.

Email Advising

You can reach us via email at kresgeadvising@ucsc.edu. We receive a high volume of inquiries, but will make every effort to respond as soon as possible.  Please only email us from your @ucsc.edu account, and be sure to include your name and ID number in your message.  If you need our signature on a form, emailing it to us is the best way to get it signed.

The Kresge College Office

The college office will open for Fall quarter on Sept. 16, 2021. Although the desk will not be staffed until then, you can still call us at (831) 459-2071 to leave a voicemail - be sure to include your name and student ID, as well as your detailed question, and we'll call you back.

We'll be training our new student peer advisor staff to run the front desk at the beginning of the quarter.  Thanks for your patience and understanding as we help them get up to speed!
