We're Here to Help
The undergraduate program advisor is here to answer questions about the biomedical engineering program at UC Davis. Faculty advisors in each specialization are available for specific questions regarding elective courses, research opportunities, graduate school and careers.
Undergraduate Program Advisor
2303 Genome and Biomedical Sciences Facility (GBSF)
- Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
To schedule an appointment, email Rosalind at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Undergraduate Advisor assists students with course selection, schedule planning, hold removal, degree checks, GE advising, planning for graduate school and internships and careers. LEADR students, international students and students with a grade lower than a C- or on academic probation must meet with the program advisor. Please note that she is available by appointment only.
You can also meet with a peer advisor during drop-in hours to discuss schedule planning, course selection, research positions and internships and to clear your hold. This advising is intended for lower division students. The peer advisor will send out new drop-in advising hours at the beginning of each quarter. Please note that there is no peer advising during finals, holidays or summer.
The College of Engineering requires students to meet with their undergraduate advisor at least once per academic year. To ensure that students meet this mandatory advising requirement, an advising registration hold is placed on a student’s record.
To clear these advising holds, students must meet with an advisor during the quarter assigned to their last name:
A–G: fall quarter (before Dec. 15).
H–N: winter quarter (before Mar. 15).
O–Z: spring quarter (before Sep. 15).
Seniors who plan to graduate in June are encouraged to clear their hold in either fall or winter quarter.
In preparation for your appointment, please save a draft version of your Academic Plan on Oasis. Uncleared holds will affect registration and schedule changes the following quarter.
If you would like additional help with material in your courses, you should attend instructor and TA office hours or find other tutoring services. Most tutoring is free, but you may also chose to hire a tutor. Here are some of the services available:
LEADR Student Center (1050 Kemper).
Tau Beta Pi, National Engineering Honors Society. They offer tutoring primarily in lower division, general engineering classes. For times and locations, see weekly notifications sent by engineering advisors.
