Academic and Career Coaches & Appointments

The Belk College of Business provides centralized academic and career coaching for all undergraduate business students. 

Current declared upper divison major business students are assigned an Academic and Career Coach based on their first business major.  Current PreBusiness students are assigned an Academic and Career Coach based on their last name. 

Current Belk College Undergraduates may schedule an advising appointment via CONNECT.  In order to schedule an appointment, log into CONNECT and Click on ‘Get Advising’.   Appointments are available Monday-Friday from 8:30-4:30 PM and must be scheduled at a minimum of 24-hours in advance.  Students are expected to bring a completed curriculum guide to their appointment with any questions they have regarding major selection, registration, and academic support. CONNECT enables students to manage their appointments.  On the day of your appointment, if you are unable to attend please cancel your appointment in CONNECT or by calling 704‑687‑7585.

Walk-In Advising is offered periodically throughout the academic year. 

Recently Admitted Freshmen and Transfer Belk College Undergraduates should attend a Student Orientation and Registration (SOAR) session for academic and career coaching and assistance with course registration. 

Other UNC Charlotte Students interested in declaring a business major must attend a  Belk College Change of Major Workshop.
