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 collaborative advising relationships, we help students identify and explore their interests and establish academic, personal and career goals.

Our Academic Advisers and our peer advisers Leon, Ragini, and Victoria are available to answer questions about scheduling classes, degree requirements, qualifying for a major, educational support and opportunities, and we hope to empower students to make the most of their time at UCSC.  We invite you to come to see us whenever you need help, have a question or just need someone to talk with. We are here for you!

Email us at, or come see us any weekday.

The online petition to enroll in more than 19 units may be accessed here -- you must be logged into your UCSC email account to access the document.
