Academic advising is a dynamic relationship between advisor and student to support the student's educational and career success. Advisors provide guidance on academic policies and regulations, post-graduate opportunities, and resources available
on-campus that offer academic and personal support.
If you are not sure where to seek advising, contact your academic college. When requesting to meet with an advisor, specify what topics you wish to discuss to ensure that you are directed to the appropriate individual. Advising at the University of Maryland is normally a combination of professional and faculty advisors. Please check your individual college to find out whom you need to see for academic advising.
