Academic Advising and Class Registration is your next step after

Placement Testing

 Academic Advising is a key component to student success and progress-to-degree, and is inseparably linked with student learning and retention.  Academic Advising is mandatory for all new students entering Bowie State University. We advise new freshman and transfer students upon entry, and will continue to advise you each semester, until you complete 48 credits.  If you are majoring in Nursing, Computer Science, English or Social Work, you will always be advised by your department.  If you have additional questions, please email us at or call 301 860-4072.

Continuing Student Registration

All students are required to meet with an academic advisor each semester, prior to registering for classes, to discuss:

  • confirmation of major/minor/concentration
  • academic standing
  • academic requirements
  • class schedule for upcoming term(s)
  • student concerns

Students are expected to self-register for classes through Bulldog Connection.
