Undergraduate Academic Services

ADVISING FOR SUMMER AND FALL 2014 BEGAN FEBRUARY 17.  We are taking walk-in's only at this time.

The Undergraduate Academic Services Office functions as a "mini admissions and registrar's" office for prospective business students and current business majors. Friendly office personnel provide academic counseling to students prior to admission and throughout the duration of their academic career in the College of Business at Southern Miss.

Students can meet with their academic adviser every semester to monitor progress toward their degree goals. The academic advisers also give referrals for social, financial, and career counseling needs.

WALK-IN SCHEDULE:

Each adviser has one walk-in day each week, on which day students are not required to make an appointment.  During an adviser's walk-in day, any student from any major (even if the adviser is not assigned to that student) can see that adviser. All of our advsiers will observe only walk-in days toward the end of the semeseter, and will not accept appointments until the new semester has started.
