UG Support Counseling Office

Due to ongoing physical distancing directives, the English Undergraduate Advising Office will be remote access only until further notice.

To access major/minor degree checksheets and advising FAQs, visit our English Advising Box Folder.

Students should contact us through MyUCLA MessageCenter (Academic counseling unit: English) or by calling (310) 825-1389.

If you have a more in-depth advising question, you can book a phone or Zoom appointment with an advisor.

To book a Zoom appointment with Janel Munguia, please use MyUCLA. Students desiring an appointment for special circumstances (double major petition assistance, departmental evaluation, returning to UCLA after an absence) may book an appointment here.

Zoom drop-in advising hours are available weekly, and are announced via our undergraduate email listserv. The exact days/times change from week-to-week to accommodate various time zones and class/work/life schedules. Keep an eye on your inbox for each week’s times!

(Please note that Stephanie Bundy is away on maternity leave at this time. During the Winter quarter, please keep in mind that there will be one advisor instead of two, and plan accordingly by sending your questions well ahead of any deadlines whenever possible.)

Have a question for your central advising unit? Remote advising instructions can be accessed through the links below.
