Advisement for Non-Majors

Annenberg majors are required to meet with an advisor once per semester for mandatory advisement (from late February to mid-April and early October to mid-November).  Non-majors are encouraged to attend an information session first during this time to learn about Annenberg's majors and minors.

Non-majors are encouraged to attend an information session to learn about Annenberg's majors and minors. After the mandatory advisement period ends, advisors will be able to meet with non-majors for an appointment. To schedule an appointment to meet with an Annenberg advisor after April 10, you may call the office at 213.740.0900 or schedule an appointment online.

To request D-clearance for a JOUR or PR class, all non-majors must complete an online form. This form will be available here.
