Academic Advising

We support students throughout their academic experience.


Academic advising continues in the virtual environment. Our advisors will engage with undergraduate business students as we support their academic goals and pursuits in the remote environment. Especially at this time of uncertainty, advisors are available and want to hear from our student community. Current students should continue to schedule their advising appointments through the UBA online appointment scheduler.

Business students begin with an academic advisor for their first and second years and then transition to a new academic advisor for their junior and senior years.

Our academic advisors develop relationships with students that encourage them to explore their interests, challenge themselves in the curriculum, and develop leadership and professional skills through active involvement. Advisors guide students to:

  • Develop suitable educational plans.
  • Select appropriate courses and other educational experiences.
  • Evaluate progress toward their established goals.
  • Develop problem-solving and decision-making skills.
  • Become independent learners by reinforcement of their self-direction.
  • Clarify career and life goals.

Students are expected to meet with their advisors at least once each semester.
