Academic Advising Resources

Below is a collection of advising resources for current AERO students

Feel free to visit the acting AERO Undergraduate Advisor, Dr. Aaron Drake, if you have a question that isn’t answered here.


  • The Engineering Adivsing Center website is the best source of advising information for Engineering Students.
  • The Cal Poly Portal has an Advising tab which lists a large list of advising and related resources.
  • Student Orientation, Advising & Resources (SOAR) is a one-day summer academic advising session that helps new students and their families learn how to navigate the Cal Poly environment. Each academic college invites their students to participate in SOAR to get connected to information specific to the new student’s major and to prepare them to register for their first quarter of classes. Families will learn about resources available to them and their students and what to expect for the rest of their time with Cal Poly. You can get to SOAR, or any other orientation program from the Orientation Programs main page or by calling 805.756.2233.
