Academic Advising

ERC Academic Counselors assist you in understanding your graduation requirements from a “big picture” perspective by providing you with specific ERC and university requirement information as well as general major information. 

We can help you:

  • understand university policies and procedures
  • develop personalized educational strategies
  • integrate experiential learning into long-term plans
  • monitor progress toward degree completion
  • seek appropriate campus-wide resources and services

The Academic Counselors at Eleanor Roosevelt College are available to meet with students during Help Desk (walk-in) and appointment times.  See the guide below to help you in determining the best way to contact us.

Walk-In Advising

Walk-in visits for current students are designed to last 10-15 minutes to ask quick questions of your advisors.  These topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Degree audit checks and corrections
  • Review of current course schedule
  • Review and signing of forms including those from Programs Abroad, Financial Aid, and International Students and Programs Office
  • Enrollment questions
  • Academic questions not involving a long-term plan

Please use the Virtual Advising Center or call our office at (858) 534-9864 if you have questions.

Hours subject to change without notice.


Appointments are available for current students in 30 minute increments and may be scheduled at the front desk of ERC Academic Advising (Third Floor ERC Administration Building) or by calling 858.534.9864.  Typical matters for appointments include:

  • In-depth exploration of major options
  • Development of a long-term plans

**NOTE: We do not schedule long-term planning appointments for Freshmen students until the Winter Quarter.**
