Advising is available at College Nine in many ways:

  • Peer Advising: Peer Advisers are well-trained and compassionate student leaders whose job is to help and support you!  They are available at the front desk Monday - Friday to assist students with essential advising questions. Staff advisers often rely on Peer Advisers for their first-hand knowledge about enrollment navigation, selecting classes, and their personal experience.  Peer Advisers are wonderful resources for graduation/GE checks, heping with enrollment, understanding next steps with a form, or identifying resources on campus! Peer Advisers also help students schedule appointments with advisers. 
  • Email Advising: Advising inquiries or forms that require our signature can also be emailed to nineadvising@ucsc.edu. An advising staff member will respond within 2-3 business days (sometimes more during our busiest times in the quarter). Please include your name and student identification number in ALL email correspondence.
  • Drop-in Advising: Due to technology limitations, we’ve suspended drop-in advising for the time being. 
Appointments are 30 minute meetings regarding: readmission, academic standing, petitions or exceptions, etc. To make an appointment schedule online using Slug Success.
