Annual Mandatory Advising

Advising Hold Schedule 2020-2021

To assist students in completing their program in a timely manner and to ensure that students are well supported during their time at UC Davis, annual advising is mandatory for all majors in the College of Engineering. You will be unable to make any changes to your schedule if you fail to release your hold by the deadline.

Please reference your OASIS portal for the specific date your hold will become active and be proactive in meeting with your academic advisor. 

 

Freshmen (First year)

All incoming freshmen majoring in Mechanical Engineering or Aerospace Science and Engineering are required to meet with their assigned Engineering Undergraduate Office (EUO) advisor to have their hold removed.

  • LEADR students (either major)

Make an appointment with your LEADR advisor to have this hold removed

  • International students (either major)

Make an appointment with your international advisor, Jordan Dade, to have this hold removed. To make an appointment with Jordan, please visit appointments.ucdavis.edu and search for Engineering Undergraduate Office.

 

Sophomores (Second year)

How to Clear Your Major Advising Holds

To release your major advising hold, you must create a draft academic plan for the next three (3) quarters and meet with an MAE undergraduate advisor to discuss their study plan. First and second year students may come to drop-in advising to clear their holds. Third year and higher students must make an appointment  to clear their holds. To make an appointment with an MAE Advisor, please visit appointments.ucdavis.edu and search for Mechanical Engineering or Aerospace Science and Engineering. 

To create the academic plan using the Online Advising Student Information System (OASIS):

  • Go to students.ucdavis.edu; click Forms & Petitions -> Submit a New Form -> Academic Plan.
  • Enter draft plan for the next three quarters and click “Save as Draft.” Do not submit the plan.

Please review the degree requirements for your major to find out which courses should be included in your plan, when courses are offered and what prerequisites courses have: Mechanical EngineeringAerospace Science and Engineering.

Changing Majors

  • If you plan to change to another major within the College of Engineering, please meet with an advisor from your intended major to clear your hold.
  • If you plan to change to a major outside of the College of Engineering, please provide an academic plan approved by an advisor from your intended major to an MAE undergraduate advisor to clear your hold.
