I. Tele-Bears
Tele-Bears begin October 18th, 2010! Appointments will be emailed to all students beginning October 4th 2010. Please make appointments with your advisor to obtain your Advisor (AC) Code. Keep in mind that the purpose of an Advisor (AC) Code is to ensure that all students receive proper advising before enrolling in classes.

1. Meet with your assigned advisor 3 WEEKS prior to your Tele-BEARS appointment.
2. Print out your current class schedule and unofficial transcript on BearFACTS at http://bearfacts.berkeley.edu.
3. Complete your Tele-BEARS form for next semester

5. During Tele-BEARS time, advisors will see students BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
