The BCLA Advising Center is here to help you navigate your liberal arts academic experience. Our academic advisors are available to help you fix errors on your Degree Audit Report, address schedule issues, core and flag questions, and more. We work together with your assigned faculty advisor in your major to make sure you're fulfilling your goals, making the most of your education, and staying on track to graduate.

The BCLA Advising Office is offering virtual office hours Monday - Friday, 10 a.m. - noon and 3 - 5 p.m., PDT, for quick questions (i.e., submitting forms, college processes, deadlines, etc.). Students with scheduling and/or academic advisement inquiries can schedule a 15 or 30-minute virtual appointment with a professional advisor by using our online appointment scheduling system. Your faculty advisor is also available to answer any questions about your major and can be reached via email for an appointment. Completed registration forms can be submitted for processing to
