Who is My Adviser?

In the College of Business and Innovation, professional academic advisers are not assigned to students alphabetically or by intended major. We have found that students appreciate some input on this decision, so students may self-select which of the COBI advisers to work with. The Office of Student Retention and Academic Success will also make recommendations based on the students’ need to match that with the adviser’s level of expertise (for example: athletic eligibility, graduation plan of study, transfer credit evaluation). Advisers are cross-trained in a variety of areas so that someone is always available to answer specific questions.

The academic adviser provide the student with accurate information about educational options, plans of study, policies and procedures, career advising, and referrals to specialized services when appropriate.  The adviser also assist the student with continual monitoring and evaluation of the student's educational progress. The student will maintain frequent contact with their adviser, and will assume final responsibility for course scheduling, program planning, and the successful completion of graduation requirements.

Our office is located in the Savage Business Complex Rm 3130, 419-530-2087. Appointments and walk-in hours are available throughout the year. Students may also email general questions to the staff through COBIadvising@utoledo.edu.
