Advisement Services

The College of Business & Economics Office of Undergraduate Advising provides services that support and promote student success. We provide advising for Business and Economics majors in the on-campus CBE Undergraduate Programs. We assist students from admission to graduation, support their academic growth, and engage them as lifetime members of the college learning community. Our services and programs support students' smooth transition into college, their transformation into owners of their academic careers, and promotes professional development.

Due to the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the CBE Office of Undergraduate Advising has transitioned to remote advising to ensure continuity of services. We will not be offering in-person appointments until further notice. Please review "Ways to Virtually Connect With Us" below for the services we are currently providing.

We apologize for the unavoidable disruption and inconvenience these measures will cause. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to serve you best during this difficult time.
