A New York Times article states that “students rarely think about academic advising until that frantic moment when they need someone to sign forms for next semester’s classes or they are not able to register for a class needed for graduation.” The article concludes that the cost of bad academic planning is considerable: Take the wrong class to satisfy a requirement and you may not have enough credits to graduate on time. Withdraw from a course and you may put financial aid in jeopardy because you aren’t taking enough credits.

In the E. J. Ourso College of Business, we offer undergraduate degrees in nine major disciplines, plus minors, and concentrations in additional areas. All programs are based on coursework that includes prerequisites that must be taken in succession. While it sounds complex and potentially confusing, you are not alone.

Academic Services is here to help. Our knowledgeable advisors understand the curriculum and can help chart an academic path that suits your needs. If you want to graduate in four years, we can help you with a strategy to meet your goal. If you are working while attending school and need to design a plan that works around your schedule, we can help with that too.
