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'll need to make an appointment to meet with him.

When should I meet with the Academic Advisor?

Within the first 3 weeks of the semester, schedule an appointment with Dr. Hoyle to discuss your class schedule and address any potential changes and concerns. Whenever you have a question or problem, it is a good idea to meet with him.

During mid-semester (around Week 9), make an appointment to discuss next semester's schedule or sign a major, minor or make a modification.

If YOU delay you may miss out on registering for the classes you need! Don't wait until the end of the semester - book an appointment early!

How do I schedule an appointment?
