Academic Advisement

Mihaylo College of Business and Economics 


New Transfer Students: Mandatory Advisement

All transfer students in the Mihaylo College of Business & Economics must meet with a business advisor prior to registering for the first semester to clear the mandatory business advisement hold.

As a new transfer or readmitted student in the College of Business and Economics, you are required to see an advisor before registering. A hold will be placed on your registration, and will not be removed until you see an advisor in the Business Advising Center at either the Fullerton Campus or Irvine Campus. Please make an appointment with Michelle Lucio for advisement and to remove the business advisement hold.


What does "Pre-Business," "Pre-International," or "Pre-Economics" mean?

  • All new and readmitted students are initially classified as pre-business, pre-international business, or pre-economics.
  • After successfully (C or better) completing the lower-division prerequisite requirements, students must apply to the upper-division concentration of their major.
  • The lower-division requirements are: ACCT 201A & 201B, BUAD 201, ECON 201 & 202, MGMT 246, and MATH 130 or 135 or 150. Pre-students are advised to complete the lower-division core courses as soon as possible, as many upper-division business courses are not open to pre-students.
