Academic Advising and Course Updates

A diverse group of students giving each other high-fives

Our dedicated advising team specializes in guiding students toward academic success. 

Did you know that can you meet one-on-one with a program advisor to ask for help and guidance? If you are considering further studies, ask about the new accreditation track and our Master of Accounting and Finance (MAccFin) program.
