Merrill College Academic Advising

Welcome to Merrill College Advising!

The Merrill College advising team is here to guide students from the time of their acceptance to UCSC through graduation.  By developing effective, collaborative advising relationships, we help students identify and explore their academic interests and capabilities. We are available to answer questions about scheduling classes, degree requirements, qualifying for a major, educational support and opportunities, and we hope to empower our students to make the most of their time at UCSC.
