2) During registration periods, appointments are not available. Advisement during these periods is on a walk-in basis only.

Mihaylo College Ethics Requirement

One of the goals of the Mihaylo College of Business and Economics (MCBE) is to promote the development of ethically responsible students who will become future professionals in business, economics and other related fields. As responsible members of the Mihaylo College community, students are expected to adhere to the highest standards of academic integrity and overall ethical conduct. To insure that all Mihaylo College students are aware of these standards, the faculty of the Mihaylo College adopted a policy that mandates students fulfill the Mihaylo College Ethics requirement by acknowledging the Mihaylo College Student Code of Ethics, become familiar with the policies and practices related to academic dishonesty and plagiarism, and demonstrate competency in these areas by passing the Mihaylo College Ethics Quiz.

If you are meeting with an advisor, you must first complete the Ethics Requirement.

For more information on how to fulfill the MCBE Ethics Requirement, please go to:

Degree Requirements

If you would like to view a summary of the degree requirements, please go to any of following:

In some cases, it may be stipulated that the prerequisite course be completed with a minimum grade. A corequisite is a course that may be taken concurrently. It is each student’s responsibility to make sure that they meet prerequisite or corequisite requirements. Students who do not meet requirements may be administratively dropped from the course.
