How do I get 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.

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.

When should I meet with the Academic Advisor?

Before you begin choosing classes for each semester, it is best to arrange an appointment with Dr. Hoyle to discuss your class schedule and address any potential changes, conflicts and concerns. Book your appointment early!
