Advising Updates During Remote Learning

IB Advising will be fully remote until campus and county recommendations allow otherwise. See our Advising Update Document for more details on changes to advising and major policy.

Major advising will still be conducted through Google Meet (formerly "Hangouts"). Continue to schedule your appointments on CalCentral and the advisor will create a Google Meet link. Though you need a pre-scheduled appointment for declaration, we have plenty of same-day appointments available every day. Same-day appointments can be made starting at 8:00 AM, and up to 30 minutes in advance, for things like course planning, graduation checks, research, and most general questions.

IB Peer advising will be conducted through email and Google Meet, Zoom drop-in, and Facebook Messenger.


Registration Holds & Declaring IB

The declaration application is open for fall semester. Students must receive confirmation that their application has been processed before scheduling an advising appointment.

IB majors who declared prior to fall received an email on Sept. 21 about completing our registration survey. The deadline for the survey is Nov. 2.

General hold information is summarized on our declaration page. Students who receive an "Undeclared at 75 Units" hold from L&S must either declare the major or, if ineligible, meet with a staff advisor to go over their conditions to declare. Same-day appointments are available and can be booked each morning starting at 8am on CalCentral.


Academic Progress Reports

IB is now using the Academic Progress Report (APR) in CalCentral to monitor your major requirements. If you notice an error in an IB requirement, submit our error report form and an IB advisor will contact you. If a university or college requirement is incorrect, use the online L&S form to report the error to a college advisor.
