  • Registration/Late Registration Drop-in Advising: BSBA students can utilize late registration advising during the first week of classes in the fall and spring and later in each semester during registration week.  Advisers are available to offer assistance with finding a replacement course, registering for classes, or other general advising needs.

  • Advise-A-Thon: Held in the fall and spring prior to registration.  Advisers are available to meet with students on a first come, first served basis.  This is a great opportunity to inquire about upper division coursework, course and elective sequencing, and progress toward graduation.  Common inquiries often pertain to what types of jobs can be sought with a particular major, double majoring, complementary minors, and post-graduation options.
