During your first year, all undeclared business majors are pre-assigned two advisors: a business school faculty advisor and a business school peer (student) advisor. Both advisors can help you with many topics, including course planning, major selection, career planning, and strategies for academic improvement. Peer advisors also provide guidance on campus life and student activities, and can show you how to use SCU’s many advising resources and materials.
You can learn more about the accounting program by contacting any of our Accounting Peer Advisors, who are specially trained to advise business students who are interested in learning about majoring in Accounting or A&IS. Accounting Peer Advisors can also help Accounting and A&IS majors schedule their courses, consider potential career paths, and navigate career placement and recruiting strategies.
After you select your major, you will be assigned a new faculty advisor who teaches full-time in the program of your choice. Accounting majors are advised by professors in the Accounting department, while Accounting and Information Systems (A&IS) majors are advised by professors in both the Accounting department and the Information Systems and Analytics (ISA) department. We also provide detailed guidance on course and career advising in the following documents:
