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.

Academic Preceptor Beth Thompson and Academic Advisers Magdalena Serrano and Anum Qadir, and our peer advisers Sydney, Tatiana, Kevin, Leon, and Ragini 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.
