Drs. Goldberg and Rosenbloom and Mr. Phin look forward to
meeting with you.*
Now is the time to begin planning your courses for the
Spring Semester.Plan to meet your
with your advisor well before your advising appointment time.If you don’t have an advisor yet,
please make an appointment to see me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Spring Schedule will be on line on October 14 Advising
for the Spring semester will begin or November 11.The university requires that you meet personally with your
ANCS Advisor once a semester in order to be allowed to register.Developing a good, ongoing relationship
with your advisor helps him or her to give you appropriate and accurate
guidance in planning your course of study at UMBC, in making your course
selections, in meeting your graduation requirements, and in investigating
possibilities for your future career.
Consider making an additional
appointment outside of the usual registration period so that you have more time
to discuss issues about your time here at UMBC and your future upon graduation.
Set up an appointment with your advisor.Follow the instructions below:
requirements for your major or minor in the UMBC Course Catalogue (on line) or
at the ANCS Department website: http://ancientstudies.umbc.edu/under “Major” or “Minor.”List all
the courses that you have already completed and the ones that you still need to
complete.Draft a plan of the
courses that you intend to take for the coming semester using the online course
schedule. Remember to bring your
projected course schedule to your advising appointment.
2.Review your GEP requirements in Degree Audit in SA
to see what general education requirements you still need to complete your
course work.It is your responsibility to check to see which requirements you still
have yet to complete for your BA degree so that you can plan with your
you need 45 upper level credits (300 or 400 level) and 120 credits to
graduate.If you need more upper
level credits, be sure that the electives you choose are upper level.
4.Jot down any
questions you may have for your advisor so that you don’t forget them.
* You are also welcome to meet with other Ancient Studies
instructors to discuss your career at UMBC or thereafter, however you must meet
with one of these advisors for an official advising appointment and in order to
be cleared to register for the spring semester.
