The Mihaylo Business Advising Center aspires to be a regional leader in innovative advising that facilitates students success. We empower, support, and guide our business students through developmental advising and collaborative partnerships across the university to ensure our students' transition into university-level learning and the achievement of their academic goals.
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.

To grant permission to CSUF major and/or academic advising professionals to permit participation in academic advising activities please fill out and submit the FERPA Advising Release Form.

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.
