Schedule Appointment

Current undergraduate students can use the general advising appointment calendar or one of the OAPA Advisor links below to schedule an appointment with an Academic Advisor.  While all of our advisors are able to assist Exploratory students, some do have specific areas of expertise.  Take note of any special considerations below and on their booking page.  Advisors will conduct their appointments in person and virtually. Students may choose their method of appointment when accessing the advisor’s calendar.

Note: Undergraduate students with declared majors looking for assistance with registration will need to be cleared by an academic advisor in their department. You can find your advisor’s contact information in your myUMBC profile. If you’re unsure who your assigned academic advisor is, please contact the advising coordinator for your major. 

Incoming undergraduate students will register for their first-semester schedule of courses on their selected Orientation Advising day. On this day, you will be provided with advising authorization and will work with an Orientation Advisor to enroll in classes.

Incoming students can register for their Orientation Advising Day here and learn more about preparing for orientation advising here. Once you sign up for your day, you will be contacted by Undergraduate Admissions & Orientation with more details.

We are excited to welcome you to UMBC and look forward to seeing you at Orientation!
