Seek Advice Early

As you earn your BBA from the Coles College of Business, you may face complex academic requirements, new professional expectations, and weighty career decisions.

Even though you’re pretty good at reading the catalog, planning your courses, and charting your own course, talk with our professional advisors, as well as the faculty advisors in your major, before you:

Advice for:

First-Year Students
Transfer Students

At Least by Your Sophomore Year

Even if you have no questions, we recommend that you draft a plan for all your remaining business coursework during the first term of your sophomore year and make an appointment to review that plan with an advisor. If you are a transfer student who will be a junior or senior, you should prepare a similar plan and review it with an advisor during your first term at KSU. Make sure you schedule this review several weeks prior to registration for the next term, before the lines get long.

On Track to Graduate?

Seek advice often. You will also want to check with our advisors regularly to make sure you’re on track to graduate as expected. In addition to talking with our professional advisors, our office has check sheets available to help you keep track of your requirements. Just stop by Burruss Building 431 or locate your check sheets online by visiting your Major page.

It Takes a Team

You’ve got a Coles College team on your side as you plan and complete your studies. Within our office, any advisor can speak with any student; we don’t assign or limit you to a single advisor. Within your Major, selected faculty members hold the responsibility to provide formal advice on academic requirements and career issues, yet all our professors are here to help you succeed.
