Advisement Services

The College of Business & Economics Office of Undergraduate Advising provides services that support and promote student success. We provide advising for majors and minors in the main 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.
