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 and in-person (Bldg. 74M-A). This summer we will not have peer advisor drop-in advising. You can 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.
