  • Learn the business certification process requirements, including GPA, courses, and credits
  • Confirm that your WSU email or forward is working. This is the University’s official means of communication.
  • Make your appointment well before priority registration. If you must cancel, be sure to notify your advisor.
  • Actively take part in the advising process. Ask questions, be prepared, and participate.
