Advising and Student Support

BBA Advisor

FALL 2020 Semester: To keep our students, employees and extended community safe and healthy and follow public health guidelines, Vancouver Island University will be following a hybrid model of educational delivery for fall 2020. At this time, the BBA Degree Advisor will not be meeting with students face-to-face. 

The BBA Advisor, Andrea Martin, is located in Building 250, Room 446 and is available to meet with students from mid August to late June.  Normally, there is an appointment sign-up sheet located outside the advisor’s office. At this time, however, students should email the BBA Advisor with their questions and a request to book an appointment to have a discussion, either through zoom or via telephone. 

During 2nd year, BBA students must meet with the Advisor regarding their choice of 3rd and 4th year major.  It should be noted that while first year is common to all majors, variations in course requirements begin in the fall semester of second year.  The BBA Matrix details the courses in each year.

The Advisor is responsible for entering the chosen BBA major on to the student’s academic record but will only do so if substantially all of the 1st and 2nd year requirements have been met. If students are eligible to declare their BBA major, it is important that they do so. The BBA Advisor goal codes students majors in March and October each year.

Without the proper coding, students will not meet course reserve requirements and will likely be waitlisted for upper level required courses.
