Advising

Freshman Advisers: Forty faculty members advise frosh on their academic programs. Students are assigned another adviser once they select an option (major), but many frosh forge strong bonds with their first adviser and keep in touch throughout their undergraduate career.

Option Advisers: After you've declared your option, a faculty member from that option will help you select courses, chart your progress toward your degree, and eventually counsel you about graduate school or employment. 

Dean's Office: The Dean of Students Office fosters the academic and personal growth of undergraduate students through counseling and support for student activities. It also serves as the liaison between students, faculty, and the rest of Student Affairs.

Career and Prehealth Advising: Caltech's Career Development Center provides career counseling and resources that will help you prepare for graduate school and life beyond Caltech. Interested in medical school? Check out our prehealth counseling office.
