Preregistration Advising

I travel a lot, which means that finding me physically is difficult, but finding me via email is vastly easier. Therefore, when possible, I prefer to discuss your course plan with you over email.

To discuss via email

Send me an email at with the set of courses you want to take, or with any questions you may have, and we can work it out by email.

To talk face to face

If you need to talk face to face during advising week, please email me at in order to schedule an appointment.  And please, if you need to talk to me about issues that are more comfortable for you face to face, don't limit yourself to preregistration week.

Registration FAQ

I'm a McCormick student; Should I have filled out my theme form by now?

Yes. It's also in your best interest. If you don't then they may disallow some theme course that you've already taken, which would be a bummer. Also, they eventually refuse to let you register at all until you fill the form in.

I'm a Weinberg student, do I need to see you at all?

In a word, no--unlike in McCormick, you don't need an advisor's signature at registration time.  But again, if you'd like advice, by all means contact me, as per the above.

What happens once we decide what I'm taking, if I'm a McCormick student?

You will log into the McCormick Advising System (MAS) and add your courses to your study plan. I will then log in and approve the courses and your registration hold will be lifted within two business days.
