First-Year Advising

Most first-year students majoring in a Business program are assigned to Erin Krummell as their academic advisor. These majors include: Business Administration and Sport Leadership and Management. Academic advising gives first-year students the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of:

  • Major specific and core required courses
  • Course selection, registration, and academic plans
  • Minors or secondary majors
  • Building internships and study abroad into your academic plan
  • On-campus resources available at UNE

You are encouraged to schedule appointments to meet with their advisor on a regular basis and not just in the weeks preceding the registration process.

Faculty Advisors

During your first year, a member of the College of Business faculty will serve as your secondary advisor. After the conclusion of your first year, a faculty advisor will take over as your primary advisor for the remainder of your undergraduate studies. Faculty advisors are a great resource for information on curriculum-specific questions, research opportunities, and to provide insight into graduate programs or career options in your field of interest.

Mandatory Pre-Registration Advising Meetings

All first-year students in the College of Business are required to attend a Pre-Registration Advising appointment* with Erin Krummel in the fall and spring. You will be given an alternate pin number to use at the time of registration and will receive an email with details on how to sign up for these meetings. Until you attend a First-Year Mandatory Advising Meeting, you will not have permission to register for classes.

Mandatory Pre-Registration Advising meetings must be completed during mid-October through mid-November of your fall semester and mid-March through mid-April of your spring semester.

*A drop-in appointment, faculty advisor meeting, or an appointment with a peer advisor does not complete this requirement.
