The weekly walk-in advising schedule is posted on the 4th floor and is also available by calling 301-738-6079. (Walk-in advising hours are for current students. Prospective students should attend an Admissions Workshop, Transfer Visit or Open House. Due to the size of our program we can not meet with prospective students during our weekly walk-in advising hours.)

All Smith School undergraduate students are assigned an academic advisor. Students enrolled in the Smith School undergraduate program at Shady Grove are required to meet with their academic advisor each semester to ensure that they are informed about current requirements and procedures. If you are unsure of your advisor please stop by the 4th floor of building II for assistance.
