The mission of the Economics Student Services Department is to advise students holistically by providing a high standard of service in a supportive and collaborative environment. Undergraduate and peer advisors work as a team to provide accurate information to students in a timely manner. We partner with faculty to assist students in engaging with the campus and the global economics community. We value fairness, diversity, and the important roles our students, faculty, and staff in the Department of Economics play at the University of California, Berkeley.
Connect with our advisors virtually at the following links:

While most advising questions can be addressed on a drop-in basis, some topics may require an appointment. Depending on the advising need, advisors may ask students to schedule a follow-up appointment if the question cannot be addressed during drop-in hours.

Appointments are booked online via Cal Central and can be scheduled with any undergraduate advisor. Note that scheduled advising appointments can be booked up to two weeks in advance during busy seasons. Please plan ahead. See APPOINTMENT NO SHOW/CANCELLATION POLICY for more information regarding advising appointments. Please do not schedule multiple appointments with different advisors to discuss the same questions. This makes fewer appointments available to other students, and is a duplication of efforts for advisors.
