The second part of your orientation experience!

Aggie Advising will provide you the academic advising support you need to prepare for course schedule planning and registration.  By completing Aggie Advising you will be able to:

  • complete your individualized academic course planning worksheet
  • complete your course registration in accordance with assigned timing (i.e., beginning with Pass One) 

All students will complete a step-by-step process to plan an appropriate schedule and will have an opportunity to work with a UC Davis advisor to address questions about preparing for your first quarter. Some departments may require additional advising such as the University Honors Program, the Educational Opportunity Program, or Athletics. It is critical to actively check your UC Davis email account for specific information about advising.
