During registration periods and the week prior to registration, the demand to see an advisor is very high. Because of this, the Business Advising Center (BAC) becomes very busy and waits can be long. We advise students to arrive at least two hours before our posted closing times. Because of the high demand once we reach capacity the BAC may stop accepting walk-ins earlier than the time posted.
Please arrive 5 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. If you arrive late for your appointment you will be asked to reschedule. If you need to cancel your appointment please call (657)278-2211. Failure to cancel may impact your ability to schedule appointments in the future.
Fullerton Campus: During registration periods, appointments are not available. Advisement during these periods is on a walk-in basis only Monday - Thursday from 8:00am-11:30pm & 1pm-4:30pm. We do not accept walk-ins between 12:00pm-1:00pm.

To make sure that new students start off on the right track, all newly-admitted students to the Mihaylo College of Business and Economics are required to visit with an advisor before registering for their first semester courses. A registration hold is placed on their first semester's registration.
New First Time Freshman (FTF) are required to attend a New Student Orientation (NSO) to remove their registration hold and transition successfully into CSUF and Mihaylo College.
Transfer students are required to complete three steps upon admission to remove their registration hold and transition successfully into CSUF and Mihaylo College.
One of the goals of the Mihaylo College of Business and Economics (MCBE) is to promote the development of ethically responsible students who will become future professionals in business, economics and other related fields. As responsible members of the Mihaylo College community, students are expected to adhere to the highest standards of academic integrity and overall ethical conduct. To insure that all Mihaylo College students are aware of these standards, the faculty of the Mihaylo College adopted a policy that mandates students fulfill the Mihaylo College Ethics requirement by acknowledging the Mihaylo College Student Code of Ethics, become familiar with the policies and practices related to academic dishonesty and plagiarism, and demonstrate competency in these areas by passing the Mihaylo College Ethics Quiz.
If you are meeting with an advisor, you must first complete the Ethics Requirements.
