Office Of Student Retention And Academic Success

Who is My Advisor?

Welcome to the Office of Student Retention and Academic Success at the College of Business and Innovation. In COBI, professional academic advisors are not assigned to students alphabetically or by intended major. Student gets to self-select their COBI advisors. 

The office of Student Retention and Academic Success makes recommendations based on the students’ need to match that with the advisor’s level of expertise (for example: athletic eligibility, graduation plan of study, transfer credit evaluation). Our academic advisors are cross-trained in a variety of areas so that someone is always available to answer your questions.The academic advisor provides the student with accurate information about degree programs, plans of study, policies and procedures, career advising, and referrals to specialized services when appropriate. The advisor also assists the student with continual monitoring and evaluation of the student's educational progress.

As a student you will maintain frequent contact with your advisor, and will assume final responsibility for course scheduling, program planning, and the successful completion of graduation requirements.
