Zoom Drop-In Advising

Visit us during our Zoom Drop-In Hours for quick express advising meetings with a Lewis Advisor. Once you join the Zoom Meeting, you will be placed in a virtual waiting room until our Peer Advisor is able to greet you. From there, they will ask you how we can support you and connect you with an available Lewis Advisor. This is a first-come basis service. The wait time can vary depending on the time of the quarter and upcoming deadlines.

Important note: Due to security and safety reasons, students must be logged into their UCSC Zoom Account to enter the Zoom Room. For any students that do not have an active UCSC Zoom Account, please email 9jrlcpa@ucsc.edu to schedule an appointment with a Lewis Advisor.

Spring 2024 Hours (April 2nd - June 12th): Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 1:30pm-3:30pm PST. (Last student is seen 15 minutes before the end of Drop-In.)


Appointments are available for scheduling online at least 24 hours in advance through Slug Success.

Please reach out to our Peer Advisors for assistance in setting up an appointment with a John R. Lewis Advisor (9jrlcpa@ucsc.edu).
