Before you schedule an appointment to meet with an Academic Advisor in the Monte Ahuja College of Business, you will want to obtain documentation to show the College what you learned in your courses. These documents must be brought with you to your first Academic Advising Appointment. In the United States these documents are referred to as "Course Descriptions" and "Course Syllabi". A course description lets the advisor and the academic department; Marketing for example, know what the course was about. A course Syllabi offers the course description as well as a detailed account of what you did and learned in the course each and every day or week. When in doubt, obtain both.
