Academic advising & support for traditional undergraduate students

Make an Appointment

Your academic adviser is available to provide one-on-one support, help create your academic plan, and direct you to additional resources. If you have a question about your academics and don't know who to ask, we suggest starting with your academic adviser.

Steps to Scheduling an Appointment

  1. Find your academic adviser below by major and click the Make an Appointment button
  2. Login to Microsoft Bookings with your full Cal Lutheran email address; you will then be directed to the MyCLU login screen
  3. Once on your adviser's appointment page, choose the type of appointment you would like to make
  4. Select an available day and time
  5. Fill in your contact info and other details to schedule the appointment

Please note: There are times during the year when we receive more appointments than usual. It may be difficult to find appointments at the beginning of the semester and before registration.
