    How do I declare a major?

    To declare a College of Business Administration major go to the Dean’s Office and complete the required form.

    How do I find who my advisor is?

    This information is found in your WING Student Center.

    How often will I meet with my advisor?

    The Department of Accountancy requires meeting with your advisor before registration.

    What do we do when we meet?

    A meeting with an advisor early in a student’s program is about planning classes. As the student progresses the discussion becomes more about extracurricular activities, internships, and career opportunities.

    How can I prepare for our meetings?

    Consider the following questions: Am I going to complete 150 hours to be eligible to be a CPA?, Am I going to add a minor or second major?, What else should I do while in school?, What kind of career opportunities interest me?, What internships will lead to those career opportunities?

    What if I'm struggling academically?

    Contact your advisor.

    What if I'd like more of a challenge or a new experience?

    Our majors typically do a at least one internship and are encouraged to be active in extracurricular activities such as Beta Alpha Psi. 

    Adding a minor, second major, or study abroad experience are other excellent choices.

    How do I apply to graduate?

    Complete the “Apply for Graduation” found in your WINGS Student Center. It is recommended that you make an appointment with the Dean’s Office to due a Senior check after you’ve register for your last semester of classes.

    What are my options after graduation?

    Accountancy majors have great placement rates and success in their careers. Internships before graduation often lead directly to permanent career placements in public accounting, corporate accounting, or governmental accounting. Graduates are employed in virtually all aspects of business including accounting, finance, and management positions.
