Every semester, the CNMS Advising Office publishes updated advising assignments (typically in October and March).
****ADVISING INFORMATION BELOW REFLECTS EXISTING ASSIGNMENTS ONLY. UPDATED/NEW ADVISING ASSIGNMENTS FOR SPRING 2023 (FALL 2023 REGISTRATION) WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE IN EARLY TO MID-MARCH.
Incoming/first semester or recently declared life science students should defer to the CNMS Advising Office (CNMSAdvising@umbc.edu) for support until their official advisor assignments are updated/released later in the semester. ****
To determine your assigned advisor for the upcoming registration period, please follow the TWO steps below.
1.) Select your declared major and then search for your name.
Search by declared major and then last name — in alphabetical order.
2.) Identify your advisor contact information.
To decipher the above assignments you will want to refer to the following directory below which includes all of the contact information necessary to follow up with your assigned advisor — including email and office information. In general, emails are preferred.
*** If you are unable to find your name in the appropriate chart please e-mail CNMSAdvising@umbc.edu.***
***Students who were undeclared prior to the end of the most recent schedule adjustment period may not have an assigned advisor during this cycle. In the interim, they will be served by either the CNMS Advising Office (if under 30 earned credits) OR their respective department’s interim advisor (over 30 earned credits). ****
