Academic Advising

Emphasizing a personal approach to education, UMUC Europe academic advisors are available to assist you in planning and completing your educational goals while you are in Europe. Advisors are always available to:

  • Develop and discuss educational plans consistent with your interests and goals
  • Assist you with your course selection
  • Discuss how you can complete your education with UMUC anywhere in the world
  • Prepare a Fast Plan to see how close you are to a degree and help you enroll in courses (until an official evaluation is completed)

You may also request a no-cost Fast Plan and make an appointment to see your advisor in person, by phone, or by e-mail. Curious to see how your credit might transfer to UMUC? Visit our Transfer Evaluation System.

The UMUC Europe academic advising team looks forward to discussing your educational goals with you. Please contact us for further information on UMUC Europe courses, programs, and degree planning.

To Ensure You Have a Solid Academic Plan

  • Schedule and maintain regular appointments with your academic advisor.
  • Consult with your academic advisor before enrolling in courses.
  • Ask for assistance in a timely manner if you are unsure about university policies.

 

Prepare for Your Advising Appointment:

  • When scheduling an appointment, inform the local UMUC staff what you would like to accomplish during your meeting.
  • Think of any questions you may have for the advisor about completing your academic program or starting a new one.
  • If your official evaluation is not complete
    • Request a Fast Plan (tentative evaluation).
    • Submit your unofficial transcripts at least three days prior to your appointment.
    • Request official copies of all outstanding military or civilian transcripts, or college-level test scores, to be sent to UMUC.
  • If your official evaluation is complete
    • Review your degree requirements in MyUMUC.
