Academic Advising

At CalArts, Academic Advisors complement the guidance students receive from their mentor. 
Advisors work collaboratively with students, their Mentor and their School in order to help students identify their academic, personal and career goals. Academic Advising’s mission is to guide students toward fulfilling degree requirements, but also wants each student to have fun along the way, so students can also expect fun, quirky, upbeat and positive encouragement.

Hours and Contact

Appointments are available 10 am-4 pm, Monday through Friday during the school year. Although the Office does its best to offer drop-in academic advising, it is recommended that students schedule an appointment in advance.
