Advising

Undergraduate students in the School of Business are assigned to both a professional advisor and a faculty mentor. Professional advisors assist students with course selection and planning in order to reach degree completion in a timely manner. Faculty mentors guide students with career goals, professional certifications, continuing education beyond an undergraduate degree, and experiential learning opportunities such as study abroad programs and internships.

Freshman and Sophomores (< 60 hours)

Freshman and Sophomore level students are required to meet with their professional advisors each semester. If you do not know who your professional advisor is, please contact the School of Business: 478-471-2724. 

Juniors and Seniors (> 60 hours)

Juniors and Seniors are required to meet with their professional advisors annually. Juniors and Seniors should also contact their Faculty Mentor in their junior year. If you do not know who your faculty mentor is, please contact the School of Business: 478-471-2724.
