Welcome to CAFES Advising Center

CAFES Advising: We’re In-Person and Virtual!

CAFES Advisors are here to support student success! We’re providing advising support via email, Zoom (link/QR code below) and in-person (Bldg. 74M-A). The full drop-in schedule is below. You may also email your Academic Advisor or CAFESadvising@calpoly.edu to set up an advising appointment for items that are less time-sensitive or for academic planning.

Drop-in advising will be offered virtually only until further notice. Our Peer Advisors will be assisting students in a virtual-only capacity during Winter quarter. We would love to meet with you and answer your questions via Zoom! (Please use the link/QR code above - no appointment needed.)
