College of Management Advising

Welcome to the College of Management! We are excited to assist you as you complete your academic program. We have numerous resources available as you plan out your degree program.

  • First and foremost, your academic advisor is a key resource to help you navigate degree requirements, registration, policies, procedures, and online systems. Establishing a good relationship with your academic advisor will be important to ensuring your needs as a student are being met in the College of Management (COM).
  • Second, there are many available resources online, including information on registration, important dates and deadlines, major and minor programs, how to complete waiver exams, and additional advising services.

We encourage you to use the web site as a primary resource to get your questions answered and find the information you need about your degree program. If you have further questions, please contact your assigned academic advisor. If you haven’t been assigned an academic advisor, or your academic advisor is out of the office for an extended period, you may contact the College of Management Advising Center.

Newly Admitted Students

Newly admitted College of Management undergraduate students are assigned to work with a professional academic advisor before they declare their major. Professional academic advisors are full-time advisors in the College of Management.

Completing New Student Orientation (required) and the Online Program Planning (OPP) section of the New Student Orientation, and/or the on-campus Group Advising and Registration (GAR) session and the on-campus COM Program Information Meeting (PIM) (one of the COM orientations is required) will help you understand the requirements, resources and strategies needed to complete your College of Management (COM) degree successfully. After completing the NSO/OPP/PIM you may contact your academic advisor with questions you may have about getting started or choosing your major.

Assigning an Academic Advisor

As a new student to Metropolitan State or transferring to COM from within the university, approximately a week after being admitted, the process assigning your academic advisor begins. Once your academic advisor has been assigned, you will receive a welcome letter, via email, indicating who your academic advisor is, their contact information, and important steps to take as a new student to COM.

Metro State Email Account

Activating your Metro State email account is important since it is the official form of communication between you and the university (University E-mail Policy 1050). Due to data privacy, advisors cannot email or respond to personal email addresses. See your admission packet for instructions on activating your student email address.
