COVID-19 Update for Spring 2020:

CS Student Advising will suspend in-person advising effective Tuesday March 17 until further notice. 

Current CS students may contact us via email: undergrads at ugradhelp@cs.ucsb.edu or graduate students at gradhelp@cs.ucsb.edu. Please allow up to 3 business days for a response. We will offer advising appointments via Zoom video. We will not have staff in our physical office, please be sure to reach out to us via email only for an appointment starting on March 23.

General hours remain the same for our staff: Monday-Friday 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm PST. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to serve our students during this time.

** Enrollment update** As of March 17, 2020, waitlisted students should expect to be added to a course only if seats become available. The shift to remote course instruction for Spring quarter will not change our enrollment limits. We are still bound by instructional teaching loads and instructional support (TA/tutor availability). The capacity in each course is determined by multiple variables (not solely the classroom size), including but not limited to: 

Classroom size availability 
Instructor availability 
Instructor teaching load
Instructional support availability (TA/tutor support) 
Scalability of the course
