Fall 2020 Advising

  1. Advising will begin virtual advising on Tuesday, March 24th.
  2. We have divided students among the faculty members and you will receive an email from your assigned advisor sometime during the next three weeks. We require that you submit a completed advising sheet (New Curriculum/ Old Curriculum) to your designated advisor via email. They will reach out to you via email or google hangout if there is an issue with your advising sheet. If not, they will give you permission for Fall 2020.
  3. Additionally, please note we do not require students to submit a permission request forms for 333, 399, and 499. Due to limited seating, we request that you enroll in 499 during your last semester at UMBC.
  4. MCS 404: As communicated by Professor Snyder, we are aware of the challenges faced by our students concerning securing internships for the summer and next semester. If you have a verified internship, please complete the google form. If you have concerns because you planning to graduate next semester but haven’t completed the requirement, please reach out to Professor Snyder by email. He will be working with students to make sure this requirement doesn’t become an issue holding students back from graduating. Also be aware that MCS 404 will be a hybrid course and there is a spot for every student that needs it.
  5. MCS 404 – Please fill out the MCS 404 Permission Request Form and you will be notified when you are given permission.
