Due to the recent COVID 19 surge, the Cogsci advising office will be delivering services entirely remotely until further notice. The CogSci advising office has developed a new hybrid model to deliver services to students in-person, remotely, by appointment, and drop-in, and in various time zones. We hope to return to that model once it is safe to do so. 

To make an advising appointment, students should use the CalCentral advising tool.

While a seamless transition may be appealing, it’s important to consider the strength of your application with respect to your target programs and schools.
