What Should I Ask My Advisor?

In addition to making sure you are on track to fulfill degree requirements, you may also want to seek advice on topics such as:

  • How many credits should I take?
  • Should I drop or add a course?
  • Which concentration or track within the major would be best for me?
  • How can I find out more about internship, research, study abroad, graduate school and career possibilities?
  • How do I explore alternatives if I want to consider changing my major?
  • Should I pursue a minor, certificate or pre-professional program at UMBC?
  • What help is available if I am experiencing academic difficulties?
