Advising

All new freshman, transfer, and recently declared Management of Aging Services majors should contact Desireé Sterling, Coordinator for Advising and Recruiting, in their first semester of registration. Minors are strongly encouraged to contact Desireé as well to discuss core requirements and appropriate elective options. Additionally, she is available to answer general questions about University requirements (such as academic policies, registration concerns, and general graduation requirements), academic support, transfer concerns, research opportunities, and career options.

All students must meet with an advisor at least once per semester (Fall and Spring) to obtain authorization to register and discuss academic progress and post-graduate plans. Please review your progress towards your degree before these appointments by reviewing your degree audit, program requirements, and previous advising notes. Come prepared to discuss your upcoming semester plans and academic/career goals.

Desireé is available for advising appointments throughout the academic year. She can be reached via email at dsterling@umbc.edu for scheduling.
