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. 

The Belk College of Business Academic & Career Coaching Office will only see students on a walk-in basis during the period March 13th through April 7th. You can view the walk-in schedule below and by using the Belk College Walk-In Advising service in Starfish.

To access the Belk College Walk-In Advising Service please log into Starfish and under your My Success Network you will see Belk College Walk-In Advising. There you can view the walk-in availability for all coaches. An appointment is not necessary despite what the service indicates, the service merely informs you of coach availability. Walk-ins are on a first come, first served basis.

If your previous coach is not listed, please visit another coach’s walk-in hours.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact an Academic & Career Coach.
