The Masters Programs Office (MPO) advising team consists of professional staff that supports all of the masters programs at Smith. The MPO team will help you manage your program from the time you are admitted until you graduate.

Throughout your time at Smith, the MPO staff will provide you with information and assistance regarding registration, class scheduling, graduation and any other program logistics that may come up along the way. MPO staff also manages this student website, Networth, and we work with students to develop and implement programming such as orientation and other community events.

Walk-in advising is limited to brief, 10-15 minute sessions with an advisor "on call" for quick questions about issues with impending deadlines. Days/hours are listed at the bottom of students' weekly email from their advisor.

Students are encouraged to make an appointment with an advisor to discuss academic goals and questions or get specialized advising on specific topics. Contact the Masters Program Office at (301) 405-9565 or to schedule an appointment.
