Welcome to CAFES Advising Center

CAFES Advising: We’re Virtual!

CAFES Advisors are here to support student success! We’re providing advising support via email and Zoom. Our office is closed at this time to in-person or drop-in appointments due to coronavirus safety precautions. Please drop-in to our Zoom Advising sessions for general or major-specific advice at the times listed below as we would love to assist you with your immediate questions this fall!  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.
