Get ready for your Tele-BEARS appointment!
Tele-Bears advising for Spring 2012 has begun and appointments are now available! The spring schedule is posted at http://schedule.berkeley.edu. Phase I appointments begin October 17. You can view your Phase I and II appointment times on Bear Facts.

Appointment Guidelines:
- All CNR students must meet with their advisor to obtain their advisor code (AC). No ACs will be distributed by phone, email, or without an appointment.
- Schedule your appointment early. Do not wait until the last minute to schedule an appointment, as there may not be any available before your Phase I appointment.
- Arrive to your appointment prepared. You need to bring a completed Tele-BEARS form and any questions that you may have. You can pick up a copy of the Tele-BEARS form from the CNR office (260 Mulford) or print one out online at http://nature.berkeley.edu/site/req_forms.php
- Arrive to your appointment on time. If you arrive late and are unprepared, you may be prompted to schedule another appointment, as most appointments are scheduled back-to-back.
- Please refrain from cancelling and rescheduling appointments. When you make an appointment and cancel, you are take up a time slot that another student could have used. We may cancel your appointment if you reschedule more than one or two times to allow other students to have a chance to sign up for one.
