Your advising experience begins at McDaniel Local.

Your advising process begins at McDaniel Local the summer before you arrive on campus for your first semester. Prior to registering for your fall classes, you'll have an opportunity to meet one-on-one with a professional staff member for your first advising session. In addition to learning more about you, you'll also have a chance to discuss your course preferences before you register. It's just one way we make sure you begin your McDaniel journey on the right foot.
