Your geography and environmental planning adviser is committed to helping you

degree, the geography and environmental planning adviser is also a valuable resource for
internships, career choices, applying for jobs, or challenges with classes.

department at 410-704-2973.
How Do I Prepare For My Advising Session?

students must assume responsibility for completing published degree requirements.
Then, to prepare for an advising session:
- Check Peoplesoft for your assigned registration date and review your advising report
/ academic requirements.
- Contact your adviser and schedule an appointment prior to your assigned registration
- Check degree requirements in the catalog
How Do I Register?
Make sure the adviser removed the advising hold at the end of the advising meeting.
