Academic Advising

The Undergraduate Business Program (UBP) Office is located in McColl, suite 3100. Until further notice, we will hold all advising interactions virtually. If you have not been admitted yet (pre-business), report to the College of Arts & Sciences Academic Advising Program for advising matters.

The relationship between you and an academic advisor is one of shared responsibility. You are ultimately responsible for the choices you make in college, while academic advisors and others in the University community help you make informed decisions and reach your full potential.

Our responsibility to you are to:

  • Help you to explore your interests, abilities and goals to develop a meaningful educational plan that satisfies your degree requirements.
  • Be a responsive listener and refer you to appropriate support services within the University when needed.
  • Discuss and encourage experiential education and co-curricular opportunities, such as, research, study abroad, internships, case competitions and club/organization involvement.
  • Clarify university policies, regulations, programs and procedures when you have questions.
  • Empower you to make independent and informed decisions.
  • Challenge you to do things and think in ways that are new and different.
  • Maintain and protect the privacy of your educational records as mandated through the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA).

Our expectations of you are that you:

  • Adhere to the UNC Kenan-Flagler Core Values and Code of Conduct.
  • Actively seek out help when you need it; don’t wait until it is too late.
  • Read your UNC Kenan-Flagler email every day. Pay attention to information sent from our departments and offices. Email is the University’s official mode of communicating with students.
  • Be an actively engaged student.
  • Be aware of deadlines and other important dates each academic term.
  • Review your Tar Heel Tracker every semester to monitor your progress towards your degree completion. If you see discrepancies contact ubpacademics@kenan-flagler.unc.edu.
  • Meet with your academic advisor at least one time per year to discuss your academic plans and progress.
  • Accept responsibility for your decisions.

Academic Support

The UNC Kenan-Flagler Undergraduate Business Program (UBP) has a strong commitment to our students and their success.

If you are having difficulties with a course you should first reach out to the instructor for help and talk with them during office hours to address your questions and/or concerns. If further support is needed/recommended, see the service(s) that best support your need(s).

UBP: Peer Tutoring

The UBP offers peer tutoring services that focus on the quantitative core business courses that are most challenging to students. Peer tutoring is free of charge for business majors and minors.

The ultimate responsibility for your success in the UNC Kenan-Flagler Undergraduate Business Program lies with you, the student.

Tutoring is designed to provide help beyond the work you do in and out of class. You must:

  • Attend class regularly
  • Attempt to understand the materials based on readings of your textbooks, review of class notes and handouts, and use of outside sources.
  • Make every effort to comprehend your lectures and assignments.

Tutoring is not a substitute for attending class, doing the assigned readings and homework, or studying.

To request tutoring or if you would like to become a tutor, submit the UBP Peer Tutor Program Interest Form and an advisor will reach out to you with more details.

For pre-business students seeking admission to the UBP, you may obtain prerequisite tutoring support from the UNC Learning Center or directly through the department offering the course:
