Find My Advisor
Newly declared majors will have an assigned advisor starting Fall 2022. Your advisor is listed at the top left of your DegreeWorks page.
Existing majors do not have an assigned advisor. Each of our advisors is well versed in all business majors and will collaborate with you to develop a personalized and effective academic plan. Our office is committed to the highest quality of service in each and every interaction.
Add or Change a Major/Minor
To change/add a major or minor:
Students who have already declared their majors in the Walker College of Business must meet with an advisor before making a change to their program of study.
Make an appointment through our website: https://businessadvising.appstate.edu/schedule-appointment
After you and an advisor have discussed how the program change will impact you, you will be given a link to a Change of Program Form.
Students who have declared majors in other colleges, who wish to add a minor from the Walker College of Business, should see their college website for information about adding a minor.
Find major/minor requirements:
You can find the requirements for all majors and minors in the Undergraduate Bulletin.
Remember that majors, general education and minors must all have the same catalog year, so when you are looking for the requirements of a minor, make sure you are searching the correct corresponding catalog year.
5 Count Limit
Students not admitted to the Walker College of Business through the BSBA program may take a maximum of five business courses at the 3000 level or above.
When students become admitted to the College of Business they will no longer be restricted to a limit of 5 business courses at the 3000 level or above.
Senior Check is the last official review of your progress in meeting graduation requirements. It supersedes any other advising plans and should be completed early in your second to last semester of classes.
Academic advising is an integral part of the educational experience. It is not an isolated event, but rather an ongoing process between the student and the advising center contributing to the development of student independence and decision-making. At the heart of advising is the development of each student's intellectual and personal growth. While advising helps students define their educational goals, the primary responsibility for decision-making rests with the student.
