Advising

Walk-in advising is limited to brief, 10-15 minute sessions with an advisor "on call" for quick questions about issues with impending deadlines. 

Students are encouraged to make a 30-minute appointment with an advisor to discuss academic goals and questions or get specialized advising on specific topics. Contact the Masters Programs Office at (301) 405-9565 or ggibson@rhsmith.umd.edu to see when an advisor is available for your program.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law established to protect the privacy of student records. The Masters Program Office and the faculty at the Smith School of Business and staff abide by these privacy guidelines. Confidential student information will not be communicated to a third party, including immediate family members, without the expressed consent of the student, except when allowed under FERPA law.

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.
