If you are an undergraduate in the Academic Advancement Program, we encourage you to consult these pages to educate yourself about the rules affecting your academic career and to explore the many resources available to you here in AAP and at UCLA in general. Please remember however, that each student’s situation is unique and that you should use this site as a supplement to, rather than a substitute for, meeting with your AAP College Academic Advisor.

AAP addresses the specific needs of its target population, and it is very important that you frequent the advising office in order to meet with an AAP College Academic Advisor or process UCLA College petitions and related requests.

All AAP College Counselors are available for scheduled in-advance or same-day appointments. Come to the AAP Counseling Front Desk at 1205 Campbell Hall to schedule a time to meet with your AAP Counselor or Peer Counselor.

HOURS: AAP Counseling Unit hours are 8:30am to 4:30pm, Mon.-Fri.

UCLA College Advising Units

There are four principal advising units administered by the UCLA College:

Since each unit has been created to address the respective needs of its target population, it is very important that you know which advising office you should go to in order to meet with a full-time counselor or process UCLA College petitions and related requests.

For a full list of the counseling resources and special programs offered by the UCLA College, please visit the Undergraduate Education homepage.

Academic counseling is an integral component of learning and personal development at UCLA. Appreciating that students are multifaceted, AAP counselors honor the diversity of their experience and background. We foster student empowerment through a developmental approach and philosophy. Counseling supports AAP scholars in order to facilitate academic and personal achievement, by expanding aspirations and future endeavors.

AAP counselors are professional academic counselors who have substantial experience advising students regarding the myriad of questions that generally arise during all stages of your progress to degree. For example, you should see a full-time counselor if you need help program planning for double majors and special degree programs, or if you think you might have challenges in satisfying the senior residency requirement.

We can be of particular assistance to students who are facing any academic challenge, are seeking readmission to the university, or need guidance on making the most of your undergraduate experience. Please come and see us as often as you like – we are here for you and your ultimate success!
