You are welcome to contact any Marketing faculty member during their posted office hours or make an appointment. Once you have officially declared Marketing as your specialization, you will be assigned a specific advisor.
Go to MyBGSU and click on "My Advisor."
You should see your advisor during posted office hours. Some faculty have sign-up sheets on their office doors, or you can make an appointment.
The Department of Marketing does not give academic credit (hours) for internships. You can register with the Cooperative Education & Internship Program. Upon completion of your internship, a notation will be made on your transcript.
Before the last day to drop/add (the deadline date can be found on the Registration & Records page on the Web Portal), you can drop a class on MyBGSU. After the last day to drop/add, you must get your instructor's signature and assigned either Withdraw Pass (WP) or Withdraw Fail (WF). Then take the form to your College office.
The Department of Marketing uses the automated "Wait List" on the Web Portal. Students on the Wait List will be notified regarding whether they have been admitted via their BGNet email accounts. You can also check your schedule to see if you've been admitted.
If you add your name to the Wait List, but later decide that you do not want the course, please remove your name from the Wait List so the department has an accurate count of students who are waiting for the course. Thank you!
