Advising is a collaborative effort between you & your Major Advisor​. Academic Advising is not mandatory but highly recommended to ensure you are on track to completing your degree requirements.​

Prospective Students

Students interested in attending Stanislaus State and declaring Business Administration as a major should first contact the Office of Admissions and Outreach Services to inquire about admissions requirements to the university.  There are no admission or impaction requirements for Business Administration majors at Stanislaus State.
