Advising

Matthew Jones TestimonialAt USM, online students are provided with the advising support they need to be successful. Students are assigned an enrollment advisor throughout the inquiry and application process, and both a Faculty Advisor as well as an Online Student Success Advisor to help them from the time they are admitted through graduation.

Your Online Enrollment Advisor will help you:

  • Understand what to expect from an online program
  • Decide which program is the best fit for you
  • Determine how previous course credits might transfer into an online program
  • Change your major, if you’re already a student at USM

Your Online Student Success Advisor will help you:

  • Think through your career and academic goals
  • Schedule courses each term
  • Ensure you are on a path toward graduation
  • Answer any questions you have, and provide on going support throughout your time here at USM
