Schedule an Advisement Appointment Students are responsible for scheduling an appointment with their advisor. Our center uses an online appointment system, Grades First. See below on how to make your appointment using Grades First. Appointments are held in the Student Success Center (College of Business Room 1101).

BEFORE Your Advisement Appointment:


PLEASE NOTE: If you are below 2.0 GPA, it is mandatory that you meet with a College of Business Success Coach, before receiving your RAN from your Academic Advisor.
