Advising

Advising Support

The Farmer School of Business hosts admission information sessions throughout the semester for current Miami University students seeking admission. Students should see their assigned advisor (login to myMiami, click on the Student tab, and your advisor will be listed) first. Non-business students may meet with a business advisor during drop-in advising periods. Please attend an Admission Information session before meeting with a business advisor during drop in advising Monday through Friday from 1:30-4:30 in 1022 FSB.

Course Access

Non-business students may access the Diversity courses, ECO 201, ECO 202, MTH 151, and STA 261.

  • The Business Core requires a diversity course. Most diversity courses are non-business and thus open to non-business students. 
  • ECO 201 and 202 require a math placement score of 12 or higher or successful completion of a preparatory math course.
  • Math Department recommends a math placement score of 16+ or successful completion of a pre-requisite course to take MTH 151.
  • STA 261 is a general statistics course. If taken prior to admission, STA 261 + ISA 225 will meet the Business Statistics requirement. 

Typically, the departments will have seats available in ACC 221, the FYIC (BUS 101, BUS 102, ESP 103 and BUS 104), CSE 148, and STA 125 for students who are admitted to business at the end of fall and spring terms. For students admitted at the end of summer terms, course access may be more limited, but can include some business courses. Additional information about accessing these courses will be shared upon admission.

Course Planning

If you are admitted to business at the end of your first year, you can still graduate on time. We have sample plans below for each major or course of study that outline the recommended courses, semester-by-semester. Please review this prior to meeting with a business advisor during drop in advising.
