Office of Student Affairs

Hello and Welcome!

The Office of Student Affairs is committed to providing a friendly, educational, and collaborative experience for undergraduate business students with faculty, academic advisors, and administrative staff. It is highly recommended that students visit an advisor each semester to ensure that they are informed about their curriculum, graduation requirements, and issues related to the School to Business and the University. We are here to serve you!  Our staff is here to assist you with an array of services and programs.  The office is located in suite 222 in the School of Business and online.

We are dedicated to students first!
