Student and instructor in class


The CALS Academic Advising Office offers guidance, resources and opportunities to help you succeed.


We are all feeling the impact from COVID-19. Online classes, working remotely, stay-at-home orders, and on and on. We want you to know that CALS CARES (Connecting, Accepting, Respecting, Encouraging Students). We are here for you and invite you to connect with us during these uncertain times.  Have a question? Need advice? Just want to check in with others about your semester? Networking and connecting with your Wolfpack family is important.

Join a CALS CARES session through a 3 step process:
1) Create a free Zoom account (if you have never used Zoom before):
2) Register for the session(s) below you wish to attend virtually (click on the time for the registration link).
3) Follow the instructions through the emails you receive after registration to log on to join us.

CALS CARES starts this week and will last through May 8, 2020.  Join us for one week or every week…your choice. All meetings will last 1 hour at the EST listed below.
  • Transfer Tuesdays – new to CALS from another college at State or a completely different institution, we’re here for you
  • Wolfpack Wednesdays – we want to hear from all CALS students
  • First-Year Fridays – dedicated time for students completing their first semester (or two) in CALS

Note: if these times don’t work for you, please reach out to  

Take Ownership of Your Education

As a CALS student you will be assigned a personal advisor, listed on the Degree Audit, who can help you maintain balance and stay on track with your studies. We advise students to contact their advisor whenever they have a question or concern about their academic progress, want to know more about programs or opportunities in CALS, or need advice on college life.

Your personal advisor is here to:

  • Guide you in major selection, career development and personal enrichment
  • Answer questions and give advice on academic matters
  • Share internship and research opportunities
  • Help you understand life at NC State
