Welcome to Fulton Advising

John Anello, Fulton Advising Services Coordinator

Students: Welcome to the Fulton School’s Advising Services!  

I’m John Anello, Advising Services Coordinator, and your point of contact with the Dean’s office.   I’m located in room 113A Blackwell Hall, and my phone number is 410-543-6236.

This site is intended for students interested in or already pursuing a degree from the Fulton School.  To add a Fulton Major, please see below.

Please explore our site for information and helpful resources. We invite you to engage actively in the advising process with your faculty advisor, listed in your GullNet account.  An active partnership is critical to effective advising – and timely and successful completion of your college degree.

Changing Your Major

The best time to change your major is before the Program Planning (advising) period! Many departments across campus will not process a Change of Major Form during Program Planning, and will instead process these forms after the advising period. As a result, you may not be able to meet with a department advisor for your new major until the advising period has concluded for current majors. 

Fulton advising sign-ups for Program Planning begin in October and March each semester. Please make sure your Change of Major request has been submitted to the appropriate Fulton department by the start of Program Planning.

Petitioning the Dean’s Office

The policy of the Fulton School is that, absent very unusual circumstances, students must add all courses, drop all courses, request a change in grading (pass/fail, audit), credits for a course (when applicable) by the end of the drop/add period at the beginning of the semester. Please see the University Calendar for important dates. 

Please follow the link below to download petition instructions. In order to ensure a timely review, please follow each step within the appropriate instructions. A petition request is not considered complete until each step has been successfully completed by the initiating student. All requests should be submitted to the office of the Fulton advising coordinator, John Anello, Blackwell Hall 113A.
