Welcome to our Accounting Advising page!  We have included some general information about advising for our major, but we are always happy to discuss anything in more detail.  If you are an Accounting Major, the best way to get further information would be to email your advisor (contacts listed on the side). For non-Accounting students with general inquiries about the major, please email

  • If you do not notify your advisor in advance that you are unable to keep an appointment, your absence will be noted as a No-Show. 
  • After (2) No-Show appointments, you will not be seen until after registration begins and all other students have been advised. 

You will need to contact your advisor directly to reschedule a time.

Please note that the Accounting department does not accept high school credit (such as AP) for any of the accounting coursework. We do not allow outside transfer credit for any of the major accounting courses. (5000+ level)
