Academic Advising

The Office of Student Affairs guides you through your undergraduate academic schedule and helps you understand the University’s policies and procedures.  The College of Business Academic Advisors will help students organize their undergraduate plan of action and provide information on educational options and professional development activities. 

Advising Requirements
Though all Business students should see their advisor at least once per semester, academic advising (group advising or one-on-one advising) is required of all Pre-Business majors and all Business Majors whose AU cumulative GPA is below 2.00.  (Students will not be eligible to register for course work for the upcoming semester(s) if they do not attend an advising session.)  Advising sessions are available to Business majors only.

  • Group Advising:  Offered each September and February
  • One-on-one Advising: Year-round (see advising hours and locations below). 

Before meeting with your Academic Advisor for a one-on-one session
Review the curriculum model for your major
