The Office of Academic and Student Affairs (OASA) provides academic advising and counseling for engineering undergraduate students. Our counseling and advising services include guidance with policies and procedures, advice on curriculum requirements, identification of resources for tutoring and study skill improvement, and the review of petitions. However, we also serve as a gateway to a myriad of campus resources, and welcome any engineering undergraduate student to stop by 6426 Boelter Hall for help with their concern.
In addition to student advising, OASA supports engineering students in a variety of ways throughout their UCLA experience, beginning before admission and continuing until degree completion and commencement.
Some of our engineering students start out in another major at UCLA. We provide regular change of major workshops to guide students through this process.
We also help direct engineering students to internship opportunities.
OASA works with the Office of External Affairs to publicize the large number of scholarships available to engineering students. Many of these scholarships are also administered by OASA.
For students approaching graduation, OASA provides a degree audit to clarify exactly which requirements remain to be fulfilled for degree completion. Students should be sure they understand this mandatory process at least two quarters prior to their degree expected term.
OASA works with the administration of each engineering department to ensure that curriculum offerings and course scheduling support timely degree progress for our students. These offerings are publicized in the most recent HSSEAS Announcement.
OASA administers the senior exit survey and provides extensive statistics about the school.
OASA also works with the numerous engineering student organizations.
