Academic Advising for Ross Undergrads

Advising and support from professional staff is an important benefit of the Ross undergraduate experience.

Your advisor guides you to the opportunities at Ross that are best for you, and helps you make the most of them. Your advisor is there for you when needed — as a mentor, a supporter, a friend — through any challenges you may face.

There are many ways they can help:

Academics
  • Developing educational plans that are right for you.
  • Selecting appropriate courses and other educational experiences.
  • Understanding degree requirements.
Opportunities
Interests
  • Clarifying your intellectual, professional, and personal interests.
  • Developing personal goals and evaluating your progress.
Appreciative Advising
  • Ross academic advisors are dedicated to helping you successfully navigate personal, Ross and U-M challenges via the Appreciative Advising method, which centers on student perspectives and goals.

BBA (both regular and preferred admission) and Minor in Business students are assigned an individual advisor upon being admitted to the program. You can meet with them to ease your transition, discuss your options, and track your progress.


Coaching and Mentoring

The Ross community cultivates professional and developmental relationships among students. Peer coaches operate in many areas including Admissions, Global Student Experiences, and the Preparation Initiative, as well as many student-led efforts via professional clubs and fraternities.


Career Counseling

As you look to your life after graduation, our Career Services counselors are available to prepare you for that perfect job — or even help you figure out what it might be. Ross Career Services provides you with personal support for the career search through targeted seminars and individual appointments with professional staff and trained peer mentors.


Counseling and Psychological Services

The University of Michigan’s Counseling And Psychological Services (CAPS) — committed to ensuring U-M’s diverse student body can access care, receive high quality services, and take positive pathways to mental health — has a counselor located at Ross. Julie Kaplan, LMSW, provides free and confidential counseling to students enrolled at Ross.
