Marketing,Hospitality, and Logistics Admissions

Getting started

To apply for admission to our programs, a student must first apply to Central Michigan University and then apply to the College of Business Administration.

Meeting with an academic advisor

All students in our programs are counseled by academic advisor, Dr. Jeffrey Hoyle. To discuss your class schedule, sign a major, minor, or make modifications to your signed major or minor, or cancel a major or minor, you will need to schedule an appointment to meet with him.

Before you begin choosing classes for the academic year, it is best to arrange an appointment with Dr. Hoyle to discuss your class schedule(s) and address any potential changes, conflicts, and concerns. His advising schedule is listed below. Get ahead of the rush - book your appointment early!
