Through the advising process, we offer students academic guidance, and help them set personal, educational, and career goals. On this website, you will find many resources to help you be successful at CalArts. We recommend that you seek advising at least twice a semester. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Advising Mission Statement
Academic advisors complement the guidance students receive from their mentors. Academic advisement is a collaborative relationship between the student and an advisor. Advisors work with students to identify their academic goals, develop the skills needed to obtain those goals and guide students through the requirements of their degree. Advising is a process that helps students to approach their degree in a holistic and organized way. Students can expectan atmosphere of guidance, support, and encouragement from their advisor. Advisement services are provided by the Institute Academic Advisor housed in the Office of the Registrar.
