Haliya Bazhaeraili

Advising Center Graduate Assistant


The College of Business and Management takes a team approach to undergraduate academic advising.  Your college advisor will assist you in meeting all college and university requirements to graduate in a timely fashion.  You will also have a faculty advisor who assists you in choosing the right mix of courses best suited to your individual goals.  Of course you are also a member of the team, working with your advisors to layout your schedule prior to registration and working with them to address any concerns proactively.

The information found here is meant to assist you in answering some common questions, direct you to resources, or provide quick access to commonly needed forms.  However, please feel free to talk with your advisors anytime you have any questions or concerns.  Reviewing this information will allow you to be better prepared when you do meet with either your college or faculty advisor.
