Start Down the Path to Graduation

The Office of Undergraduate Programs will guide you through your academic program while you attend the university. Academic advisors assist students with everything from scheduling classes to planning a study abroad experience to joining a student organization. In addition, Undergraduate Programs also operates two learning communities for first-year students which allows them to live with others who share their academic interests.

The Professional Enhancement Program (PrEP) is a series of courses designed to connect academic knowledge to life skills. Here are a couple of changes to the program that you should know about:

  • New CBA students (with bulletin year starting Fall 2013) will be required to take all PrEP courses as part of their degree, ideally taking one course every year. Classes must be taken in sequential order (BSAD 111, 222, 333, 444).

The goal of the courses are to engage students in a high-impact, experiential practice that leads to self-knowledge, professionalism, and career development that can be applied throughout one's professional life. Courses include:

BSAD 111: Professional Enhancement I
BSAD 222: Professional Enhancement II
BSAD 333: Professional Enhancement III
BSAD 444: Professional Enhancement IV

Student Responsibilities

Students in class

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the College of Business Administration are committed to providing effective academic advising to students as an essential component to their educational experience.

Academic advisors are available to assist in assessing educational goals, planning programs of study, understanding degree requirements, and following policies and procedures. Students are ultimately responsible for fulfilling all the requirements of the curriculum in which they are enrolled. Students are also responsible for initiating advising contacts and preparing for advising sessions. The mentoring relationship between academic advisors and students is confidential and is strengthened by advisors listening with understanding to student concerns.

Students are expected to take responsibility for a successful university experience and effective advising session. For this to occur the student must:

  • Participate in New Student Enrollment, priority registration programs, and any other University/College programs designed to enhance the student-life experience.
  • Schedule appointments with advisors well in advance of priority registration and at other times as needed. Keep appointments and be punctual, or call to cancel and reschedule if necessary.
  • Read the appropriate Undergraduate Bulletin to plan which courses they want and need to take each semester.
  • Identify specific questions to address prior to meeting with an advisor and be prepared to do long-term planning.
  • Provide honest and accurate information to the advisor by letting them know of any special needs, deficiencies or barriers that might affect academic success.
  • Follow academic policies and procedures and meet academic calendar deadlines (e.g. registration, fee payment, degree audit, filing for degree, etc.).
  • Know and complete degree or program requirements and initiate a degree audit after 85 hours.
  • Check their progress early each semester with the Undergraduate Advising Office and immediately seek assistance to resolve any concerns or questions should they arise.
  • Act on recommendations to seek assistance from the various student support services provided by the University.
  • Immediately notify the University of any change in postal address, e-mail address, and/or phone number.
