The Hattiesburg Undergraduate Academic Services for the College of Business and Economic Development is located in Scianna Hall, Suite 2035. Undergraduate students enrolled in our college will under go advisement at the end of each semester to prepare for the next, helping students stay on track as they work towards their degree. 

Schedule an Appointment 

Preparing for Advisement 

Group advising is a round-table teaching session where professional advising staff teach students how to properly plan and forecast their progression toward graduation. In addition to confirming course selections for the next semester, students will learn about student success strategies, important events and deadlines, and any policy changes. 

When you make your appointment, you MUST have the following documents completed and ready to turn in:

  • Printed Degree Progress Report (printed within the last month)
  • Completed Semester-by-Semester Guide for your specific major and catalog year, which can be found here. For instructions on how to complete your Semester-by-Semester Guide, click here. 
  • Completed Proposed Schedule Sheet with a full schedule and nine hours of alternates, which can be found here.

With three group sessions offered four times per week, we have a wide range of time slots and days to accommodate every schedule. Students should be diligent to sign up early and not wait until the last minute. No students should miss class because of any group advising sessions. All group sessions begin promptly at their scheduled time. Latecomers will be required to reschedule their appointment.

AFTER you have attended group, you are encouraged to make private appointments with your advisor for more confidential topics or complicated situations. 

Are you in Good Academic Standing? Is your GPA a 3.25 or above? Are you comfortable with planning your schedule? Have you gone through a group advising session at least once (not including orientation)?  Are you at least two semesters away from graduation? If you answered yes to all of these questions, then you may complete the self-advisement form.

Please note if you choose to self-advise, you are responsible for making your schedule. If you want your schedule to be checked, or have questions about making your schedule, please make a group advisement appointment.

Anyone with an academic standing other than "Good," or with a GPA below 2.0 must schedule a follow-up advising appointment with his or her advisor (listed in SOAR) AFTER he or she has attended a group advising session. The follow-up appointment is needed to take care of academic contracts and other remediation as necessary. For more information on Academic Standing, please click here.

Walk-In Wednesday 

All advisors in Hattiesburg will use Wednesday as their walk-in day. On this day, students may ask general questions regarding their academics, but they cannot be seen for a full 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. 

Graduation Information

Students who are graduating in the current or upcoming semester must make an individual degree application appointment with your advisor (listed in SOAR). These appointments are made at the main Undergraduate Academic Services Desk in Scianna Hall room 2035.  Graduating students must first print their graduation application in order to make a graduation appointment.
