Academic Services

Appointments are required in order to see an advisor!

The Academic Services Office in the College of Business handles all issues related to academics, including advising, course substitutions, degree audits for degree candidates, probation/suspension counseling, and course/hour overrides.  Academic advisors also give referrals for social, financial, and career counseling needs.

For specific career counseling, or for more information on what opportunities each major holds, please contact Ms. Amy Yeend, Assistant Dean for Academic Services and Scholarships in the College of Business at 601.266.4663.


After students have attended a group advising session, all students can meet with their academic advisor every semester to monitor progress toward their degree.  Advisors are happy to teach students how to track and monitor progress toward degrees, as well as how to provide parents access to their SOAR accounts via the Parent Portal (PDF).

Your advisor is determined by your degree program:

Mrs. Meghan Mee: Business Administration Management, Entrepreneurship, Healthcare Marketing, Human Resource Management, International Business, Marketing, as well as all students who are on probation, probation continued, and suspension.

Mrs. Alanna Smith (ACA): Business Admin (General Business), Hospitality & Tourism Management, Merchandising, Tourism, as well as all students applying for graduation



Advising appointments with an advisor are REQUIRED for Hattiesburg students and must be made in person in our office, Scianna Hall 2035, with Mrs. Cheryl Wenzler, our administrative assistant.  If you are a Gulf Park student, please call 228.214.3447.

No appointments are needed on Wednesday's, which is the weekly walk-in day.

All of our advisors see students (walk-in's, and appointments) from 8:40 am until 3:40 pm, Monday-Friday. Please come early!



All advisors will use WEDNESDAY'S as their walk-in day.  On this day, students may ask general questions regarding their academics, but they cannot be seen for an advising session.  In order to best serve students for upcoming semester advisement, they will need to make an appointment for one of our group advising sessions located in Scianna Hall, 2035.

Gulf Park and General Business - Online students should call their advisors at 228.214.3447, as their schedules may be slightly different than those on the Hattiesburg campus.


Call the appropriate office for more information.
