Academic Advising Amid the COVID-19 Precautions 

To ensure the safety and welfare of our students and staff, the College of Business and Economic Development will not be hosting Group Advising for the remainder of the semester.  However, we have developed an alternate plan to ensure that students are properly advised for the upcoming summer and fall semesters.

We ask for your continued patience and understanding as we complete the advisement process for all undergraduate business students. Since we have so many students, this process will take time, so it may be a couple of weeks before you receive your proposed schedule. Please understand that it may take your advisor a little longer than usual to respond to your questions. 

Seniors Who Plan to Graduate in the Spring and Summer 2022 semester:
You must submit your graduation application to your advisor ASAP. The application can be found in the drop-down menu in your Student Center in SOAR.

Don’t know who your academic advisor is? Check your Student Center in SOAR or click HERE to view the advising staff directory.

Please complete Degree Inactive/Rollover Form if you have previously applied to graduate, but you will be graduating in a future term. 

All Other Students on Good Academic Standing:
Your academic advisor will review your records and send to your USM email account a completed semester-by-semester guide and proposed schedule sheet. You must reply that you have received it before we can remove your advisement hold. If you have questions, please email your advisor.

Students on Probation Continued or Suspension:
Since you are not currently on good academic standing, you must schedule an individual advising appointment with your academic advisor. These appointments can be conducted in person, over the phone, or via a web service. Click HERE to schedule your advising appointment.

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.
