Academic Advisor Walk-In Hours

*Note: Academic advising assignments depicted below are for non-first year SSHA students. All first-year students are advised within the Bobcat Advising Center.


**Academic advisor availability is on a first-come, first serve basis (there may be a wait time, so your patience is greatly appreciated).
***If your academic advisor is not available on a day/time that works with your schedule, you may meet with any available academic advisor for assistance.

When joining SSHA Academic Advising Virtual Walk-In Hours, please note the following: 

  1. Please  join our SSHA Academic Advising Virtual Walk-In hours using your student UC Merced Zoom account. 

  2. Upon clicking the Zoom link, you will join our main session where you will be greeted and checked-in by our receptionist.

  3. Once checked in, you will be placed back into the virtual waiting room until an academic advisor or Peer Navigator becomes available.

  4. Based on a student’s need(s) and academic advisor availability, you will be referred to the corresponding academic advisor’s breakout room.

  5. Once your session has ended, your academic advisor will inform you how to leave the meeting.

Note: If the “Meeting has been Locked” message appears, this means that our list is closed due to capacity and no further students will be allowed to enter at that time. Feel free to check back in later to see if the waiting room opens up again OR send an email (with your student ID number) to your assigned academic advisor with your questions.

Academic Advisor Walk-In Availability: July 15th-July 19th, 2024.
