Need to speak to an academic advisor? If you have questions about academic procedures or you are having trouble choosing your classes for next quarter, don’t hesitate to visit the College Advising Office in 1117 Cheadle Hall. Advisers can help you plan out your academic program and assess your progress throughout your time at UCSB. Here, you will also be able to petition that dreadful history class you took last quarter to fulfill a requirement, as well as look into the Honor’s Program. But remember, visiting these advisers when you need help is completely up to you, so make sure you take advantage of your resources!
