College of Business Undergraduate Advising Office

​Our mission is to help students understand what they need to do to earn a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) at University of Houston-Downtown. Advisors provide assistance with curriculum planning and information about courses required. We are dedicated to providing every business student with the necessary information and resources to achieve a successful academic career.

Students should schedule their initial advising appointment immediately upon admission to the Marilyn Davies College of Business. Students are not assigned a particular advisor; any member of the team can help with questions about degree requirements and UHD policies.

Advising Office Hours:
Monday-Thursday: 8am-6pm
Friday: 8am-5pm​

How to Make an Advising Appointment:

Declared MDCOB majors may request in person, phone, or ZOOM advising appointments. Call 713-221-8675 or visit the Advising Office to schedule an appointment.

In addition to appointments, walk-in times are strategically scheduled throughout the academic calendar year. Students are encouraged to call the office prior to arriving to ensure walk-in availability and dates.
