Undergraduate Advising

Last updated 7/1/2020

In order to align with campus directives regarding the COVID-19 response and to ensure community health and safety, EEB Advising will be offering advising services online only. EEB Advisors will be available to assist you via email and appointments will still be available via Zoom, but in person advising will not be available until further notice. The advising information below has been temporarily updated to reflect our shift to online advising.

EEB Advising provides advisement for the following majors:

  • Ecology and Evolution BS
  • Marine Biology BS
  • Plant Sciences BS
  • Biology BA
  • Environmental Studies/Biology BA.

EMAIL ADVISING: Email EEB Advising. (eebadvising@ucsc.edu)

Please email your questions to EEB Advising at eebadvising@ucsc.edu. Advisors can assist you with most issues via email, including developing four year academic plans, signing forms, graduation checks, and more complex questions. If you are requesting assistance with forms (EX. Study Abroad Academic Planning Approval Form, Veterans Benefits Verification Form, etc), we ask that you do your best to scan and email us a copy of your form, or fill in your form digitally and email us a PDF or Word document. 
  • Please be sure to include your full name and your student ID number in all emails to advising.
  • Please do not email EEB Advisors at their personal UCSC email addresses. Messages sent to advisors' personal UCSC email addresses will not be responded to. 


Appointments are made online via Slug Success. Please do not email to request an appointment. You will receive access information for your Zoom appointment via email after you have scheduled your appointment. If you do not see any appointments available in Slug Success it means that all appointments are full, so please scroll to the following week to view additional appointment availability.

Drop-in advising is not available. For quick questions we recommend email advising.
