​Undergraduate Advising

​We're here for you.

From the moment you declare your major, you'll have an academic advisor here to help guide you and discuss your progress. We know how helpful a familiar face is, so you get to keep the same advisor your entire time at the School of Business—all the way until graduation.

With so many course choices within your major, we'll help you navigate through all your options to find the best ones that match your unique goals. We know you're ready to tackle the world, so we'll also provide on-track guidance to make sure you graduate on time.

Incoming Fall 2017 Transfer Students, Welcome!

You will receive an email from the School of Business Advising office when you are eligible to make an appointment to meet with an advisor. If you have not received an email, we are likely missing important information from you.

In order to be eligible for an advisor appointment, please follow the New Student Checklist on your portal, including completing the following:

  1. Transfer Student Questionnaire
  1. Health Immunization records and Health Center hold lifted. You can check to see if you have any holds on your portal under "My Academics." If you have questions about your Health Records, please visit the Health Center's website for answers and contact information.
  1. Final spring 2017 official transcripts submitted, evaluated and updated on your degree audit by the USD Registrar. If you have questions regarding your transcripts, please contact the Registrar's office.
  1. You have been registered in a TLC course by the Assistant Dean (based on your answers to the questionnaire and your remaining courses).  This course will also appear on your degree audit as IP (in progress).
