Business Undergraduate Advising - Overview

At The University of Texas at Arlington's College of Business, we believe academic advising is a partnership between students and advisors that promotes successful progress through the students' personal, education, and career goals. Our mission is to build a rapport with each student from admission to graduation through holistic advising and actively engaging in the student's unique journey.


Academic advising for undergraduate business students is available by appointment only for the remainder of the Spring 2019 semester. All advising takes place in Suite 107 of the Business Building. Schedule an appointment with a business advisor based on your desired major.

Drop dates for:

  • Summer Intersession - May 22
  • Summer 1 (1st 5-week) - June 24th
  • Summer 2 (2nd 5-week) - July 30th
  • Summer (11 week) - July 18
  • Fall 2019 - Nov 1st

May 20th - June 4th Walk-in Advising for Summer/Fall 2019 will resume.

May 27 (All University Departments closed in observance of Memorial Day).

Academic advising is mandatory each semester for business intended students (who have not yet met the requirements to declare a major in the College of Business) and students who are on probation or dismissal/suspension.

Declared business students are encouraged to meet with an advisor to develop a plan to graduation and prior to enrolling in the last semester. Advising is not mandatory unless you are on probation. (See Degree Progress and Major Dismissal.)

Advising is much more efficient when both advisor and student are prepared. Please arrive at your appointment or walk-in advising with the following:

  • pen and paper
  • a list of questions
  • an idea of your major and career goals
  • transcripts with any new course information


Some services are not completed by a major business advisor and do not require an appointment or walk-in advising.

Place the documents listed below in the drop box located in Suite 107 of the Business Building and allow 3-5 business days for processing. We will file completed documents in the filing cabinet directly beneath the drop box under your last name. It is your responsibility to deliver the completed document to the appropriate department.
