Academic Adviser Responsibilities
The University has academic advisers ready to assist you with your academic needs. Students should meet with their academic adviser every fall and spring semester. The advising conference is more than a time to select courses. It is an opportunity for students and advisers to develop and evaluate academic and educational plans that will enable the students to reach their goals. They will help you:
- select appropriate courses for your choice of major
- explain policies and procedures
- assist with schedule conflicts
- facilitate policy exception requests
- determine graduation needs
Who is my adviser?
Students not admitted (pre-business) to the College of Business are assigned an adviser in the Undergraduate Advising Resource Center (UARC). Pre-business students can make an appointment with their academic adviser by going to the Undergraduate Advising Resource Center, Student Success Center, Suite 202, or call 424-1268, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.–4:30 p.m.. The COB advisers are:
Asst Director of
Business students admitted to the College of Business are assigned a faculty adviser in their declared major. Students can contact their faculty adviser directly for an appointment and group advising session. See Faculty/ Staff section.
Student Academic Report (STAR)
The STAR displays all your completed courses according to the University application. Examples of this application are English Composition, Non-Western Culture, Humanities, Lab Science/Natural Science, etc. This information will aid both you and your adviser in determining which requirements are completed and which ones remain. The instructions on printing and accessing your STAR are on TitanWeb. Remember to bring your STAR with you when meeting with your adviser.
TitanWeb is the University’s online registration system. TitanWeb allows students to review their enrollment appointment, add/drop courses, print class schedules, do class searches, view assigned advisers, print unofficial transcripts, review holds, check grades, print STARs and link to the electronic catalog.
Many courses at UW Oshkosh require other courses be completed or satisfied prior to enrolling in the desired course. Always check the most current BBA planning sheet for prerequisites. If there are still questions, contact your adviser.
The college monitors prerequisites. If you have not met course prerequisites, you will be removed from the class in question and notified by mail. In addition, PeopleSoft will prevent you from registering in a course when prerequisites are not met. Rescheduling for the same section of that course is not guaranteed if removed from the course.
Students with sufficient expertise, which may exempt them from a course prerequisite, should consult a UARC adviser or faculty adviser. The adviser will assist in completing an appeal form. This request must be approved by the College of Business undergraduate program director. Students that have completed a prerequisite course at another university/college must have an official transcript sent to the UW Oshkosh Admissions Office to be evaluated and added to your UW Oshkosh transcript for an evaluation.
Access to a Closed Course
If it is a College of Business course, students should visit the College of Business Undergraduate Office, Sage 1608 (424-3269 or 424-3147). See COB wait list policy in Policies and Procedures section.
Remember, prerequisites must also be met for the course.
