CBA Academic Advising

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), all CBA advising appointments are virtual via WebEx. After scheduling your appointment, your advisor will send you login information for your WebEx appointment. Visit Return to Campus for important information regarding Returning to Campus and COVID-19.

The College of Business Administration (CBA) advising staff can help you make informed decisions that will assist you in achieving your personal, educational, and career goals. Advisors will support you through your journey by helping you with:

  • Exploring majors
  • Strategies for academic success
  • Selecting courses and majors
  • Completing your degree
  • Understanding academic policies and requirements
  • Planning your study abroad
  • Navigating internship requirements
  • Planning involvement outside the classroom

Meeting with an Advisor

There are two ways to meet with an advisor, either through a scheduled appointment or a virtual walk-in appointment. Please note that a virtual walk-in appointment is typically a shorter meeting that should take 5-10 minutes. All other types of concerns should be addressed in a scheduled appointment.

Scheduled Appointments

Students will be seen on a first-come basis. After completing the form, an advisor will send you an email with a WebEx link when it is your turn for a virtual advising appointment. Please be aware that wait times will vary based upon the number of students in line. Virtual walk-in appointments should be for quick questions with an advisor.

Students wishing to transfer to the CBA from another University of Akron college will need to contact their home college to request an Inter-College Transfer (ICT) to the CBA.

Students wishing to transfer to another University of Akron college from the CBA can e-mail their CBA academic advisor the request to ICT.

Contacting Your CBA Advisor

Your CBA academic advisor contact information can be found in My Akron Student Center. Advisors respond to UA emails within 2-3 business days. Emails should be reserved for quick questions. Questions regarding scheduling classes should be done through an appointment. Due to FERPA, advisors can only respond to emails sent from the UA Zips email account.
