Advising & Resources
Haslam students are required to meet with an advisor every fall and spring semester prior to registration. Appointments are required except during specified walk-in dates and normally offered on 30-minute individual intervals.
Professional advisers meet with students regarding all academic planning concerns, including course scheduling, curriculum requirements (business majors and business minor), application to major, study abroad and academic probation.
Once you are admitted to a major, academic advising is supplemented with career and professional advising from faculty members in your major. Once per term, the faculty will invite you to an open forum so that you can learn about professional opportunities and get to know faculty and their interests. You should identify faculty in your major with whom you share common interests and communicate with them regularly.
Schedule an Advising Appointment
As a part of our new advising process you now have an assigned advisor.
In order to make an appointment over the summer you should login to the GradesFirst system through MyUTK. In the GradesFirst system click on the Button at the top right-hand side that says "Appointments for Advising or Other Academic Help."
- If you are currently a business major choose "Business Advising" and "Business Major Advising" in the next two dropdown boxes.
- If you are currently in a major outside of the Haslam College of Business and are interested in changing to a business major choose "Change of Major to Business" and "To Business" in the next two dropdown boxes.
Then choose the day and time for your appointment. Please note that only appointments for the following week will be available.
If you have any questions, please call our main office number at (865) 974-5096.
Business Course Registration
Due to the integrated nature of the business curriculum, prerequisites and co-requisites are strictly enforced. Students must be admitted into a business major (or have appropriate prerequisites if pursuing a business minor) in order to enroll in upper-level business classes.
After their semesterly advising appointment, students may register for business courses beginning on their scheduled registration date using the online registration system provided they have completed, or are currently enrolled in, the necessary prerequisites.
