Schedule Your Appointment

Login to the Online Advising Appointment System

You will need your UC Davis Login ID and Kerberos Passphrase to access the system. Once you have logged into the appointment system, select your major department and enter your information.

Choose a Date and Time

Once you have confirmed your information, you will be shown a calendar with available appointment spots. Choose the day and time that works for you.

Check Your UC Davis Email and Set a Reminder

A confirmation email will be sent to your UC Davis email account. It will have instructions and a Zoom link to log in for your appointment. If you are using a computer, you will be prompted to download the Zoom app when you click the link. If you are using a mobile device, please download the Zoom app prior to your appointment. You will also have an option to call in if you are unable to connect via another device. We suggest you check your internet or data connection so your appointment runs smoothly.

Lastly, please be sure to set a reminder for yourself. We don't want you to miss this important opportunity to ask questions and connect with your advisor.

Prepare for Your Appointment

We want to make sure you get all the information you need to register for fall classes with confidence. To do that, your advisor will need you to come prepared with specific information and questions. The following tips will help you get ready.

  • Read the First-Quarter Guide
  • Read our comprehensive guide to planning your first quarter. Learn how to select courses, balance your schedule, and start satisfying the requirements you’ll need to graduate. You’ll also find resources and tips to help you navigate the university, explore your interests, and ensure your first quarter is a success. Check out the First-Quarter Guide for Incoming Transfers.
  • Fill out the Pre-Advising Questionnaire
  • This questionnaire is your first opportunity to communicate with your advisor. It will help them learn a bit about you and the topics you're most interested in discussing during  your appointment.

    You can find the questionnaire in the OASIS student portal and it should take no more than 5-10 minutes to complete.
