Advisers who help BUILD YOUR DEGREE into a career

Accounting, business administration, business economics, data analytics, finance, management and marketing majors at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point are encouraged to meet with School of Business and Economics (SBE) academic and career advisers to help develop plans to meet their educational, career and life goals. Academic coaches work alongside students throughout their academic careers, from meeting prospective students on visits to campus to assisting with selecting majors and developing graduation plans.

Academic and career advisers help students develop plans to meet their educational, career and life goals. We assists students with major-specific questions, transferring from other schools to UWSP, planning for study abroad, career development, professional preparation, scholarships, academic success and graduation plans.

Admission to SBE Majors

The School of Business and Economics has a formal admissions policy​. You must be admitted to your SBE major to register for some upper-level courses and to graduate with an accounting, business administration and economics major. If you are not far enough along in your studies to qualify for admission to the major, we highly recommend that you request “pre-major” status by declaring an SBE major. This will ensure that you receive specialized advising from the SBE Advising Center and regular updates on events and deadlines.

Current SBE policy states that you must apply for admission to the major once you complete between 10-18 credits toward the major.

You are encouraged to apply once you have completed at least 10 credits in the major. You can check the online catalog for the recommended courses for each major. Note: this includes all courses that count toward your major including courses from other departments, as well as from the School of Business & Economics.

If you are a transfer student, you should apply before you complete 18 credits in the SBE major OR during your first semester at UWSP.

If you are switching majors within the School of Business & Economics or adding a second major, you may apply even if you already have over 18 credits in the new major, as long as you have met all other admission requirements.

“Academic coaches are the first line of contact for students and make it easy to get a good read on programs, classes, organizations and events. You can get the perspective of a peer and are given honest answers from someone who has gone through the same thing.”
