​Undergraduate Advising

​We're here for you.

From the moment you declare your major, you will have an academic advisor here to help guide you and discuss your progress. We know how helpful a familiar face is, so you will 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 will help you navigate through all your options to find the best ones that match your unique goals. We know you are ready to tackle the world, so we will also review your degree plan, talk about your on-track status and provide guidance to help you graduate on time.

Schedule an appointment

We encourage students to meet with their academic advisor at least once a semester, preferably before the registration rush begins. In order to declare your major with an academic advisor, current USD students will need to schedule an appointment to declare by clicking the link below. During your 20-minute appointment, we will discuss your interests and goals, review degree requirements and answer any questions you have.    

New incoming transfer students will be eligible to declare their major (an hour-long appointment) upon completion of the School of Business Questionnaire and receiving a confirmation from the Advising Office.  To determine if you are eligible to meet with a School of Business Advisor, please review the transfer steps.
