Still Have Questions?

Summer Orientation:

For students attending Orientation: We will be giving a detailed presentation at each Orientation session, and you'll also have a chance to meet with one of us prior to enrolling in classes (if needed). Many questions will be answered at this time, but if you review Steps 1-4 and have an urgent issue before your Orientation day, email or call (831) 459-5034.

For students not attending Orientation: In addition to completing steps 1-5 above, please review the New Student Advising Guide, which covers most of the information you will need to know before you enroll. If you have questions for us about any of this information, please email or call (831) 459-5034.

Fall Orientation & Welcome Week:

There will also be a Mandatory College Advising Presentation during Welcome Week, after you move in. We will discuss: graduation requirements, university  policies, and what you need to know to begin your first year as successfully as possible! For those students who do not attend Summer Orientation, you will also have an opportunity to connect with your major advisers during Welcome Week.
