Political Science Advising

All UMBC students are required to meet with an advisor to register for classes in the upcoming semester (except for Winter and Summer semesters).  Students must receive advising clearance to register for classes regardless of assigned registration date.  We strongly recommend students receive advising clearance prior to their assigned registration date

Political Science students are assigned a Faculty Advisor by the Advising Coordinator. If you have not been assigned to a Political Science department faculty advisor, please contact the Advising Coordinator

Students should visit their Faculty Advisor every semester prior to finalizing their schedules. This process assures a timely graduation and grants the student authorization to register.

Every student is assigned a registration date based on the number of earned credits they have (credits in progress do not count toward this total).  This registration date is the earliest time a student can register for the next semester.  If you are unsure of your registration date you can check HERE
