How to Schedule: Schedule an appointment through Handshake (Counseling Appointments tab). Appointments are visible up to two weeks in advance. If you have any problems registering, please contact us and provide us with your full name and UCLA student ID number.

Late Arrivals: Please arrive on time, as counselors are often scheduled for back-to-back appointments and are therefore unable to meet beyond your allotted appointment time. If you are running late, please call 310.206.1915 to inform us so the counselor knows whether or not to expect you.

We also provided quick Drop-in hours, more information Drop-In Advising Hours
