New Students: Onramps!

•  Frosh Onramp to the Advising Roadmap

•  Transfer Student Onramp to the Advising Roadmap

Welcome to UC Santa Cruz!

Learning about the academic and advising resources available at UCSC, and learning how to choose, prepare for, and enroll in classes for your first term are important parts of your transition to the university.

 Each student has at least two staff advisers while enrolled at UCSC:

  • College advisers and preceptors are “generalist” advisers. They can help students understand campus-wide requirements such as general education, academic progress, and time to degree. They can also help students identify majors that may be a good fit for them. Students are affiliated with their college advisers from admission through graduation.
  • Programmajor,or department advisers focus on a specific program. They can help students understand major admission and graduation requirements and academic planning for the major. Students are affiliated with their program advisers from the time they are formally declared in the major until the time of graduation.

Use the onramp links above to prepare for a successful transition to UCSC, and to enter the Advising Roadmap!
