Academic Advising Contact - Three Options

UCSD students can meet with an advisor in person or submit a question through VAC. The COMM Advising Office does not answer advising questions via email and phone due to confidentiality. 

Virtual Advising Center (VAC)

Current UCSD students can submit a question through the Virtual Advising Center. We encourage students to contact us through VAC as much as possible for quick questions, if you can't stop by in person or when the advising office is closed.
