College of Business Academic Advising Center


The purpose of the Kelce College of Business (COB) is to provide students with academic guidance as they strive to meet COB admission requirements and plan an educational course to meet career goals. 

The College of Business (COB) Steps to Academic Advising was created to assist COB students as they go through their college career and business studies.  The information in this guide will help students understand the role of the College of Business Academic Advising Center and the faculty advisors.

It is important for students to meet regularly with an advisor.  The guidelines on the right will provide COB majors with the required advisement process.
