If you have general questions and/or cannot come into our office, you may send an e-mail to Please allow three to five business days for a response as our office receives a high volume of e-mails on a daily basis.

Here are some helpful hints when sending an e-mail:

  • Use your UCI e-mail address. To protect your privacy, we will only respond to e-mail messages sent from your UCI account. This way, we know we’re sharing your information only with you.
  • Check your e-mail regularly. Lots of important information (i.e., a room change to a final exam, an important assignment that is due, the fact that you have not completed enough requirements to graduate) will be sent to your e-mail by professors, academic counselors, and other university personnel. You are responsible for reading official UCI e-mail and you will be responsible for the consequences if you don’t.
  • Identify yourself. Make sure you include your full name, your major, and your UCI student ID number in your communication with us. We need to know who you are in order to look up your record and give you thorough and accurate information in a timely fashion.
  • Be considerate. Only e‐mail one counselor with your question. There’s no need for all of our academic counselors to take time to answer the same question.
  • Be flexible. E‐mail is for quick questions. Don’t be offended if we ask you to come in as some things are better handled in person.
  • Be professional. Treat e‐mail as a somewhat formal communication. Watch your spelling and grammar.
  • Be patient. Sometimes you might get a response immediately and sometimes it might take a few days. We give priority to students who make an effort to come in for an appointment. If you really need an answer, please come in to speak to an academic counselor or peer academic advisor.
