The Colleges Nine and Ten Advising Office is located in Social Sciences 1, Room 217.  When you need to see an adviser, please check-in at the reception window.  As "sister" colleges, our College Nine and College Ten advising staff work collaboratively to serve the advising needs of our students.  During the first two weeks of each quarter advisers will see students on a drop-in basis only.  After the first two weeks of the quarter, advising continues to be available on a drop-in basis and also by appointment.  Drop-in advising is based on advisers' availability and on a first come, first serve basis.  To schedule an appointment, call the Advising Office at (831) 459-5034.
