       Undergraduate Advising for IT Majors - Spring 2020


  Towson's advising program is designed to help you navigate through your academic career and help you prepare to leave Towson to pursue a career or additional edcuation.  I will advise both face-to-face and online (email/phone).

Each semester, the university may place an advising hold on your account (depending on your status in terms of number of credits completed, etc.).  To check if you have an Advising Hold, login in to Online Services (PeopleSoft), go to Self Service / Student Center and look under the Holds section (see example below).

If you have an advising hold, you will not be able to register for the next semester until I release that hold and I will not release that hold if you do not participate in the advising process.
If you do not have an advising hold, you are not required to have an advising session, however, I am still available for advising if you so desire.  

Your degree requirements are based on when you began attending Towson University and when you declared your major.  Your official catalog year can be found on your
Academic Requirements report in Online Services (PeopleSoft).   Additional advising information is available at CIS Advising.

Summer 2020 registration has already started (you can enroll anytime).  The first day for Fall 2020 registration is Tuesday, April 14th.  

Your actual Fall 2020 registration date will vary based on your student status (number of credits completed, etc.)  Your actual registration time (enrollment appointment) can be found in Online Services (PeopleSoft).  To avoid delays in registration, send me your Registration Proposal well in advance of your enrollment appointment (follow steps below).

ollow the procedures below for academic advising:
  1. Review your Academic Requirements report in Online Services (PeopleSoft).
  2. Complete this Registration Proposal form to identify courses that you wish to register for next semester.
