Academic Advising and Resources for Undergraduates

The Office of Undergraduate Business Programs, located in Olmsted Hall 2340, houses the offices of the assistant dean and the undergraduate academic advisors. All students entering either the pre-business (CHASS) or business administration major (SoBA) are advised by the undergraduate academic advisors. Our advisors work with students from the time they enter the upper division program through graduation.

The office manages the following areas for undergraduate business majors:

  • Department and college approvals for major-changes.
  • Petitions.
  • Articulation.
  • Transfer courses.
  • Readmission decisions.
  • Preliminary and final degree checks.
