MANDATORY ADVISING

Interacting with an academic advisor early in your university career can enhance your college success. Our objective is to help you achieve your personal and academic goals, and mandatory advising is one of the ways the Math Department and the College of Letters and Science wants to help ensure that you get the most out of your experience at UC Davis.

**Seniors**

Mandatory advising for fourth year+ students occurs in Fall Quarter. The goal of mandatory advising for fourth year+ students is to ensure that you are on track to graduate, plan for your transition out of college, and finalize your next steps towards your professional goals.

Hold Timeline

Your mandatory advising hold will go into effect on December 15, 2017. It is important that you follow all mandatory advising steps so that your registration is not blocked after that date. Prior to December 15, you will be able to add, change, and drop classes as usual. 

Mandatory Advising Requirement

Step 1:

Create an academic plan in OASIS for all of your remaining major requirements. This can be saved as a draft in OASIS (in the Academic Plan section of "Forms & Petitions").

Not sure what major requirements you still need to complete? Start by check out the "Degree Worksheets" section of OASIS for all your remaining major classes. You can also find PDF versions of the Degree Worksheets on the Math website.


Step 2:
Meet with an academic adviser in the Math Department to review your academic plan, discuss campus resources, etc. You can either meet with Malina (your staff adviser), or with your faculty adviser. 
 
To meet with Malina, please schedule an appointment at appointments.ucdavis.edu
To meet with a faculty adviser, please check back here for more information (available soon).
 
Step 3:
Complete a campus engagement. A campus engagement is an activity geared towards helping you plan for your transition out of college. It is meant to help prepare you to take the next steps towards your professional goals. Examples of campus engagements:
After you complete your campus engagement, complete this 2 minute campus engagement survey to receive credit.
 
 
After you complete the steps above, your hold will be lifted within 2 weeks.
