First Year Advising (FYA) Meeting

SSHA Students that entered as freshman in 2017 will be required to meet with an academic advisor or peer mentor during their first semester at UC Merced. We hope that this connection with an advisor or peer mentor will provide a mid-semester check-in by facilitating progress in your degree and support in the development of your educational goals.

Seeing an Advisor or Peer Mentor for "First Year Advising" meeting

In most cases, meetings will take no longer than 15 minutes of your time. Advisors and Peer Mentors will be available for this important meeting during regular SSHA Advising Walk-in hours or by making an appointment with an advisor.

When meeting with an advisor or peer mentor, check in at COB 204 with the following materials:

  1. A printed copy of your current Audit, or a What-If Audit for your intended major, printed within 24-hours (Resources: how to run an audit/what-if audit through MyDegreePath or attend a "Understand MyDegreePath and Audits" workshop in October)
  2. "First Year Advising" intake form (please print and complete before checking in at COB 204)

NOTE: Students wishing to complete this meeting without the above materials will not be seen, and will be asked to come back at a later time with the required documents.

Don’t Delay! Priority advising meetings begin September 25th. You will select “First Year Advising (FYA) Meeting” as your service when checking in to our front desk. For those wanting to transition to a new major, you should meet with an advisor or peer mentor and they will inform you of your next steps and expectations.

Remember: Your ability to register for Spring 2018 will be affected if you do not meet with an advisor or peer mentor prior to November 3rd.
