Advisement in the School of Business

About Advisement

The purpose of advisement is to provide the student with the information and support needed for making the right academic decisions to complete a degree program.

The student and the faculty advisor share the responsibility for the student's progress toward the degree.  However, it is the student's obligation to consult with and work with the advisor, select the appropriate courses, and understand and fulfill degree requirements.  Please read student's advisement Rights and Responsibilities.

Student Advisement Center (BASAC)

The School of Business academic advising model relies for its success on the partnership among students, faculty advisors and BASAC (Business Administration Student Advisement Center).  To enhance this partnership, BASAC personnel serve as liaisons to students and faculty by:

  1. Answering student and faculty questions concerning processes for registration, adding/dropping classes, online information, and referral to other campus offices in the area of student services if and when the need arises.
  2. Reviewing student records and informing the student and advisor when problems are discovered.
  3. Filling out forms (i.e., off-campus approvals, change of major forms, senior checklists, etc.).
  4. Providing advice while student's faculty advisor is on sabbatical or other leave.

The BASAC staff consists of a director, an assistant director, a graduate assistant and a number of students who work on a volunteer basis and receive credits toward general education studies. 

Career Exploration and Internships

The School of Business works in collaboration with the Career Services and Experience-Based Education Offices to assist students and alumni to expand and broaden their career opportunities while they are members of our ever growing living and learning community.
