  • W’20 FINALS WEEK THRU WEEK 1 S’2020 (March 16 Thru April 3):


    • No in-person advising
    • Online or phone appointments ONLY; send an email to your Academic Advisor requesting an online or phone appointment
    • BCOE Study and Lobby Space: closed
    • Email: you can send an email at any time to your Academic Advisor; please follow guidance https://student.engr.ucr.edu/emailing-your-academic-advisor


A follow-up email will be sent by end of this week detailing the online advising process.  In the meantime, please continue to practice good hygiene, washing hands frequently with soap and at least 20 seconds, coughing in your sleeve, exercising and eating a healthy diet, getting proper medical care in timely manner, and staying home if you are sick.
