The best way to reach Cowell College while we all shelter-in-place is by email.

    Academic Advising

  • Advising is located in the Cowell Academics Administration Building at the College Office 

    Advising Office is open 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday - Friday. 
    Please call (831) 459-2253 to confirm advising hours.  

    Contact information for the Advising Office.

     *Because advising hours do vary from time to time for various reasons (meetings, staff illness, campus-wide closures, etc.), ESPECIALLY IN THE SUMMER, we always recommend that students call first if they are coming to campus specifically for advising needs.

    Many academic advising questions can also be answered via email (cowell@ucsc.edu), and may be answered throughout the day. However, appointments cannot be made over email. Please schedule your appointment by calling (831) 459-2253 or use Slug Success. You can find more information about academic advising here.

    Please note that due to FERPA regulations, we cannot discuss a student's academic information with anyone else without the student's written authorization.
