Important Dates for students.
March - Sophomore Advising Month
All current Sophomores meet with their academic advisors for half-hour advising sessions to review academic progress and plans. Students will not be able to register for next semester until they have completed their advising. Don't wait until the last minute to make an appointment or you could miss this priority time! Phone 410.225.2315 or stop by Academic Advising to schedule an appointment.
March 1 - Applications for Graduation Due for All May & August Graduates
Any student graduating in May or August must complete this form online in order for MICA to recognize your intent to graduate- even if you don't plan on participating in the May Commencement Ceremony. If you do not complete this form, you will NOT receive tickets to Commencement or your diploma.

March 2 - Last Day to Drop a Class with Record

Follow up with your instructors and academic advisor to figure out the best course of action.
