Advising & Degree Completion Planning


The Fisher College and all of its departments and programs are committed to helping students succeed and graduate in their chosen major. Each student is assigned a faculty adviser who will not only assist you in planning what classes to take, but also will take an active role in providing career planning.

Students are not able to register without first seeing their adviser who will remove their advising hold. Students should be familiar with and able to use your Online Services account.

Degree Completion Planning

Degree Completion Planning is a new advising process designed to more efficiently map your path towards graduation. It is required by Maryland Senate Bill 740. Senate Bill 740 is the Career and College Readiness and College Completion Act of 2013. It was signed into law May 2013 and requires all students to file an Individualized Degree Completion Plan by the time they complete 45 credits.

An Individualized Degree Completion Plan (IDCP) takes the Suggested Degree Completion Plan of your major (or concentration or track) and personalizes it for your academic career given your unique needs, goals, and aspirations. This plan could help you save time and money by highlighting a more direct route towards degree completion and graduation. Eventually, all Towson and University System of Maryland students will be required to complete an IDCP.
