Undergraduate Services

What is the SBM Student Services Office?

The SBM Student Services Office is located within our school (McMechen - Room 101) and provides useful information and resources for our students. For student convenience, most of the forms and paperwork processed by the Registrar's Office can be found in our Office. The idea was to establish an internal office that would create a better relationship between the SBM administrators and our students. It provides aid to School of Business and Management Students in their quest for greater academic support.

The Office serves many purposes, but one of the major functions of the office is to clear seniors for graduation. Once an SBM student applies for graduation, the application will be processed and a student audit will be generated from this office. Also, upon meeting all of the academic requirements for graduation, a recommendation for Final Academic Clearance is processed through this same Student Services Office.
