**Important Advising Announcement**

Hello MechE’s!

We hope you are excited to begin this academic year.  We also wanted to thank you for your patience and understanding given the almost daily changes that have occurred given the ongoing global pandemic.  As we all continue navigating this new landscape, we too will continue to do our best to provide you with the best experience that we can as your Student Services team.

In the Spring 2020 semester, we assigned you with a temporary academic advisor and stated we would be giving you a permanent advisor beginning in the fall.  Some of you may be changing advisors, but we did our best to keep you with the same person you had up to this point.  We ask that moving forward you work with your assigned advisor.  The advising breakdown is noted below:

Students with last name A-E will be assigned to Matt Sinclair: mjsinc13@umd.edu

Students with last name F-L will be assigned to Juana Hurtado: jhurtad1@umd.edu

Students with last name M-Q will be assigned to Kerri Poppler James: kjames3@umd.edu

Students with last name R-Z will be assigned to Fitzgerald Walker: fwalker@umd.edu

These assignments were made to balance out the number of undergraduate students (1200!) with our staff members.  Your assigned advisor has sent you information on their drop/add advising times and what to expect for the Fall semester, so please use this time to ask any final questions before the semester begins.  We also ask as a gentle reminder to allow us up to 2-3 business days to reply to any inquiries. 

GRADUATES – If you plan on graduating this Fall 2021 semester, please be sure to contact your advisor for a graduation review, and be sure to complete your Graduation Application on Testudo before the end of add/drop. 

We look forward to working with you all as you continue your academic career with Mechanical Engineering.  As always, we are here for your success!
