Faculty Advising | FAQ


Q: How can I edit the schedule request document?

A: Download the schedule request as a new copy to your local device.

Q: How do I know what classes I need?

A: Download a copy of your major's advising worksheet to your local device. Open it in Adobe or Preview and fill in all grades received. Your faculty advisor can provide any necessary guidance, but you must fully complete the worksheet. Approved electives are listed on the website.

Q: My faculty advisor is not responding. How do I proceed?

A: Please be patient and allow faculty advisors 48 to 72 hours when replying to emails. Note the faculty's office hours on campus. You may seek additional assistance from the department's chairperson.

Q: What about BisonAdvisor and DegreeWorks?

A: The School of Business is actively working with the university to update DegreeWorks and BisonAdvisor, but they are not completely accurate. Please follow the PDFs provided on our website for degree requirements, prerequisites and advisor assignments.
