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 cnmsadvising@umbc.edu.

For a more in-depth understanding of primary and supplemental advising, please visit this webpage.

Pre-professional students have TWO advisors--an Assigned Academic/Major Advisor and a supplemental, pre-health advisor. Please read about the differences between your TWO advisors here.

Only your Assigned Academic Advisor in your declared major can lift your registration block.
