Advising Information

 Academic Advising at KSU's business college is available in the Undergraduate Programs Office, Room 107 College of Business Administration Building (330) 672-2872. Make an appointment with an academic advisor online.

All business administration students are encouraged to visit the Undergraduate Programs Office at least once each semester as they pursue their business degree. Periodic and regular advising will assist the student in completing the required coursework for the B.B.A. degree in the shortest time possible. Also, advisors work with students in determining the most appropriate major. Advisors are familiar with employment opportunities and scholarship opportunities.

Here is a short list of objectives, a blueprint for success, for students to use as they progress through their four years of advising on their way to earning their business degree.


  • Proper course selection
  • understand rules/procedures
  • successful transition from high school to college
  • complete key prerequisite courses

 Not every student has a strategic blueprint for completing their business degree. As you can see, however, there are concerns that should be addressed at each stage of the academic career that make for a more successful educational experience. We both need to work together to make your blueprint perfect. See you at the drawing table!!!!
