Student Academic Advisor

Who am I?

Hi, I am Cassandra Hill. I work as a graduate student adviser in the Graduate Degrees Office. I’ve worked here in Berkeley’s Graduate Division for many years.

What do I do?

As the graduate student adviser for your major, I assist students, staff, and faculty with degrees related issues. If you need assistance with something, your best bet would be to first contact your department’s staff. Many actions you may need to take will actually need to be initiated by your department, and will often require a signature of your department’s Head Graduate Adviser. Additionally, they are in the best position to advise you with regard to your specific program’s details and requirements. Your department’s staff person should be your first contact.

How to contact me

I would prefer that you email me at chill@berkeley.edu. If you are unable to email, you can call me on my direct line at (510) 642-4589. Please allow 48 hours for a return email or phone call. You may also come to my office in person at 318 Sproul Hall nearly any time during the work week. Please call or email ahead to set up a time.
