Advising

Advising for Summer and Fall 2014 Classes

Advising is scheduled to take place from Monday, March 17th – Wednesday, April 23rd. A list of continuing students and assigned advisors can be found in the Bryan MBA and Graduate Certificates Organization in Blackboard under the “Advising” folder. You will need to schedule an appointment with your advisor to finalize your summer and fall course schedule and also get an advising code for registration.

Make-up classes: Throughout the course of the academic year and during the summer sessions, classes may be interrupted due to inclement weather, etc. In the event that a class is missed/cancelled, the MBA Program’s class make-up policy is that all make-up classes will be held on the Friday immediately following the missed class at the originally scheduled time. Please be sure to contact your instructor or the MBA Office (336.334.5390, mba@uncg.edu) if you have questions or concerns.

To schedule an advising appointment through Starfish, please follow the instructions below:

  • Log in to Blackboard using your username and password
  • Click on the “Starfish” tab located at the top of the page
  • Look for your advisor’s name in your “My Success Network” on the Home page
  • Click on the link below their name that says “See available appointments”
  • Scroll through the calendar to find an available time
  • Click on the green + to sign up for the appointment slot
  • Fill out the requested information and click “Submit” to save the appointment

The pre-registration window for all continuing graduate students will run from Monday, March 31st – Wednesday, April 23rd. Continuing students who do not sign up for classes during this period will be charged a late fee by the Cashiers Office.

For a brief description of courses offered in the Bryan MBA program, please view The Graduate School Bulletin.

*First night of class – There is usually an assignment in preparation for the first night of each class. Always check the syllabus of your course to be sure to be prepared.
