Advising

Undergraduate Advising

The Student and Academic Services office, 206 Summerfield Hall, helps students meet their academic goals. Students should take primary responsibility for their academic careers by consulting SAS, becoming familiar with the undergraduate curriculum and graduation requirements, and cooperating with all guidelines. Advisors help students choose classes and make efficient progress towards graduation. For information, see the school’s website.

Mandatory Advising

Once a student is admitted to the School of Business, he or she must meet with a business advisor at least once a semester. A business advising hold is placed on admitted students’ enrollment each semester and released after the student meets with the advisor.

Graduate Advising

The MBA office in Summerfield Hall coordinates advising for MBA and M.S. students. The MAcc office coordinates advising for MAcc students, and the doctoral office coordinates advising for Ph.D. students. Staff members advise students about program requirements, course prerequisites, and program planning. Students based at the KU Edwards Campus typically receive advising sessions over the phone and by email. Advising sessions are optional.
