The Office of Adult Students and Evening Services (OASES) advising mission is to assist adult and nontraditional students in developing and implementing individual plans for achieving their academic and career goals. Let us help you develop your academic plan, identify interests and career goals, choose a program of study, and select resources that support student success!

Students We Serve: Adult students 24 years of age and nontraditional students: Students admitted through the Adult Student Admissions Program (ASAP), 49er Finish Program students, readmitted former students, newly admitted veterans, students transitioning between majors, and prospective students.


In an effort to continue to maintain a safe environment for students and staff, using the COVID-19 recommendations, virtual advising appointments are encouraged.
