The Advising Office is open for walk-ins only October 22 through November 23.
The sign-in sheet for walk-in sessions will be removed once we have reached capacity for the day.

The BBS Academic Advising Office is located in JO 2.110 and BBS Advisors are here to help you.

Advising Contacts

The BBS Advising Office does not assign students based on major or alpha of the last name — you are welcome to contact any BBS Advisor. Since our office does not assign advisors to students, it is best to email ALL advisors regarding questions, registration issues, etc. However, if you have worked with a particular advisor in the past and wish to email only that advisor, you are welcome to do so. Otherwise, please use the following link:
