Meet UCI BioSci Student Affairs!
Your Helpful Guides to BioSci Undergraduate Education
When it comes to planning and progressing in your education here, there’s a special team poised to help. The academic counselors at the BioSci Student Affairs Office look forward to working with you to chart your educational path, to connect you with services, and assist you in making the most of your undergraduate experience.
One of their primary goals is to help plan your coursework, both in the short and long term. They provide guidance on degree requirements, schedules, university policies, research project opportunities and more. The counselors seek to ensure you explore all the possibilities during your years here and beyond.
If you are considering entering a health profession, the Student Affairs Office can provide specialized advising in those areas, from medical and dental to pharmacy, veterinary and more. Each counselor is trained as a Health Science Advisor and understands the specific procedures, requirements and timelines for applying to professional schools. While graduation may seem far off, it’s best to visit now to begin planning.
The counselors also meet with you periodically to review your progress, so you can be confident you are on track in your chosen major. You can get together with a counselor once a quarter, once a year, or on another schedule that works best for you.
The BioSci Student Affairs team assists in numerous other areas as well, such as referring you to campus support services, obtaining the Dean’s signature on necessary forms, and answering a variety of questions.

Mental Health Wellness and Support
Having an academic routine and engaging in academic self-care can will help you achieve your student goals! The UCI Counseling Center is the primary counseling and mental health agency for UC Irvine undergraduate and graduate students. The counselors at the UCI Counseling Center strive to assist students with their academic success by developing dimensions of well-being.
We invite you to visit the Bio Sci Student Affairs office during open office hours and meet with an academic counselor or peer academic advisor in a walk-in advising session. Walk-ins are seen on a first come, first serve basis and are limited to a maximum of 15 minutes. Please plan to sign up for walk-in 30-60 minutes before the office closes to ensure you can be seen that day.
If walk-in advising is not adequate to meet your needs, you may schedule an appointment to meet with a counselor for up to thirty minutes. Appointments can be scheduled one day to one week in advance, at our front desk or by calling the office’s main phone number.
