UM-Dearborn students from other academic programs are welcome to schedule an appointment with a College of Business advisor to learn more about the BBA program.

All students interested in pursuing the Bachelor of Business Administration or a business minor, are welcome to schedule an appointment with a College of Business advisor. To do so, contact the COB Student Services Office at 313-593-5460 or umd-cobss@umich.edu.

Due to the heavy advising load during certain times of the year, we refrain from scheduling cross-campus appointments during the first two weeks of each semester and the months of October and March. However, cross-campus students are welcome to participate in walk-in Wednesdays at any time of the year. These are short meetings with the advisors in which students can ask about general issues.

To apply to the College of Business, current UM-Dearborn students need to submit a Change of Degree form to their current academic unit. (Download the form to access the writable pdf version.)
