Undergraduate Advising and Student Resources

If you’re a freshman or sophomore business major or if you're not yet enrolled in upper-division (300- and 400-level) business courses, our academic advisors look forward to working with you! We’ll guide you in your business studies and provide assistance in the following areas:

  • Course selection
  • Exploration of majors and minors
  • Understanding of college core requirements
  • General education requirements
  • Community college articulation
  • Guidance on policies, procedures and graduation requirements

Once you enroll in upper-division (300- and 400-level) business courses, our departmental advisors will help you with course scheduling, career direction and internships.

It’s best to meet with your academic advisor each semester. Although walk-in hours may be available, we encourage you to schedule an appointment. Please remember to bring your degree audit (available through MyNIU) when you meet with your advisor.
