Academic Advising

Academic Advising Options

NOTE: The following options are for students currently pursuing or interested in pursuing a major in Accounting, Finance, Human Resource Management, Management, Marketing, or Supply Chain Management. Hospitality Business students should use the Hospitality Business advising services.

Walk-In Advising March 14-May 5, May 16-19 (Monday-Thursday, 12:00-3:00pm): Advising for quick questions and next year’s schedule planning. Students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis. Sign-in begins at 12:00pm in 402a Eppley Center. The following cannot be addressed in walk-in advising: international student forms, probation conferences, override requests. There is no Walk-In Advising May 6-13.

30 Minute Advising Appointment (Monday-Friday, 8:00am-5:00pm): Individual appointments for students to ask questions, plan schedules, discuss academic concerns, and make sure they are on track for graduation. To make the most of your advising appointment, please prepare for your academic advising appointment. Students must make appointments online in advance and are required to cancel in advance through the scheduling system if they cannot attend a scheduled appointment. Hospitality Business students should make an appointment to see a Hospitality Business advisor. Please check in for your 30-minute scheduled appointment in 417 Eppley Center.

Due to expanded Walk-In Advising capacity, fewer 30 Minute Advising Appointments will be available – students seeking to plan next year’s courses are welcome to use the Walk-In Advising service.

What is an Academic Advisor?

Broad College academic advisors are coordinators of your undergraduate experience. We provide critical information about academic programs and degree requirements, study abroad, leadership development, major choices, career options, policies and procedures, and campus resources. Advisors facilitate freshman seminars, advise student organizations, administer the College/Major admission process, coordinate special programs and events, serve as a reference if we know you well, certify your graduation, and work with university administrators on your behalf. We look forward to serving you and getting to know you during your college career!
