Emailing Your Academic Advisor
In order to contact an advisor via email, you are required to use your UCR Email account to send to this e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
The formatting of the email is important to help ensure your email is routed to the correct person. Please follow the instructions:
1) The subject line should include your full name and major designation as listed below.
2) The body of the message should include a polite inquiry, your full name, and your Student ID number.
Emails that do not include your full name and major designation in the subject line will not receive a response. Emails sent from an account that is not your UCR email will not receive a response. Emails with the incorrect major designation or the incorrect Student ID number will receive a delayed response asking for the correct information.
Messages will be reviewed in the order in which they are received. You can expect a reply within three business days. If you do not receive a reply with four business days, you may send a follow-up email or schedule an appointment.
Please do not send multiple messages for the same concern. Additionally, do not leave voicemail, e-mail, and visit your advisor. Choose one method of contact. If that method doesn’t result in a response within three business day, then come to drop-ins or schedule an appointment.
Are you not sure if your question can be answered by email? Check out this table to determine if an appointment is needed.
