Who is your Pre-Health Advisor?

UMBC pre-health students have TWO advisors. This website describes the differences between these two advisors.

1. A primary Assigned Advisor in your Declared Major
Your Assigned Advisor in your Declared Major is also known as your Departmental Advisor. Use this Departmental Advisor list to find out who your primary Assigned Advisor is in your Declared Major.
Biology, Biochemistry, and Bioinformatics majors have CNMS faculty or staff advisors. See the contact information here, or email for assistance with declared-major specific questions.

Biology & Biochemistry majors

Did you know there's a website dedicated to the advisement of Biology, Biochemistry, and other declared majors within the College of Natural and Mathematical Sciences (CNMS)? The CNMS Academic Advising website is the central source of information for current and prospective undergraduate students who are pursuing majors and minors within CNMS. The physical location of the CNMS Advising office is Room 140 of the Meyerhoff Chemistry building.

Your Declared Major or Assigned Academic Advisor provides you with guidance on how to properly fulfill UMBC graduation and general education (GFR) requirements; lifts your registration block every semester after you receive proper advisement; and is the point person for issues and paperwork which might require an advisor's signature.

Find out who your Assigned Advisor is by visiting this link. Biology or Biochemistry majors with 30 or fewer earned credits should contact
