Transfer and Adult Advising 

As soon as you submit your deposit or Acceptance Confirmation Form, the Registrar will complete your official Transfer Evaluation and your advising folder will be forwarded to the Admission Office.  

You will be contacted shortly thereafter to arrange for a time to meet either face-to-face or via phone. During this meeting, you will discuss your Transfer Evaluation, career goals, areas of interest, and develop a course schedule for the spring semester.  

This process usually takes place within two weeks after you submit your deposit or Acceptance Confirmation Form. If you have questions or have not yet been contacted for an advising appointment, call the Admission Office at 301-696-3400. 

Freshman Advising 

The first step in your advising process is to complete your Placement Tests.   

Once you have completed your placement tests, you will be contacted to set up your Spring Course Schedule. There will be an opportunity to meet with your Freshman/Sophomore Academic Adviser when you arrive on campus in January.
