Academic Advising

Undergraduate Program Office

The Undergraduate Program Office (UPO) invites you to visit our website, the Virtual UPO. This site includes helpful information on academic options and registration for current students.

The UPO serves as a supportive environment for approximately 2,000 undergraduate students during every stage of their academic careers at the School of Management.

We assist students as they transition into the college classroom, create the learning experience they need, and pave the way toward their successful graduation.

Students may make an appointment with professional academic advisors to discuss degree requirements, concentration interests, academic performance, and any other student issues.

In addition, we foster leadership within the undergraduate body by providing students with opportunities to excel both inside and outside the classroom. And we consider it our responsibility to recognize the individual and collective success they achieve through the many ceremonies we sponsor each year.

Academic Advising

We understand that students’ needs vary and that individual questions require personalized answers. Therefore, our academic advisors specialize in providing both current and prospective students with one-on-one guidance on the many details that create a successful academic experience.

Advisors assist students in the following areas:

  • Course requirements
  • Academic performance concerns
  • Degree program planning
  • Study abroad options
  • Course selection and schedules
  • Referrals to other University services
  • Tutoring services
  • Adjustment issues
