COVID-19 Updates and U/U Office Operations

**THIS PAGE WILL BE UPDATED FREQUENTLY – PLEASE CHECK BACK ON A REGULAR BASIS**

To all our Undergraduate/Undeclared Students,

With the COVID-19 outbreak, it is not just “business as usual” for the entire campus. You may have had to deal with last minute changes in your courses, campus involvements, housing situation, and more. We understand that this is an unprecedented, stressful time for everyone, and we in the U/U office want to support you in whatever way that we can.

Starting Tuesday, March 17th, the U/U office will begin remote operations. While this does not mean we are closed, reaching our staff and advisors may be a little different from what you are used to!

For general inquiries, we will still be reachable by phone: (949) 824-6987.

For specific inquiries, it may be in your best interest to reach out to a specific Academic Counselor. During this remote operations period, it may or may not be possible to have an in-person appointment or walk-in advising session. However, many of our counselors will be offering alternative ways to meet with students (e.g. phone, Zoom, etc).

Ask your advisor how to set up a meeting with them!
