EIU Resources for Students in the B.S.B. in Business Administration Program


The following resources are available through EIU for students enrolled in the BSB Program.

Academic Advisor

After you are admitted to Eastern Illinois University as a Business Administration major, you will be assigned an Academic Advisor.  You will always contact the same advisor for assistance and will work with that advisor until you graduate.

Your advisor:

  • Is available throughout the semester to answer questions and provide support;
  • Is a resource to help you understand the requirements of your major and find services you might need at EIU;
  • Will help you develop an academic plan appropriate for your career and life goals; and
  • Will consult with you each semester to help you prepare for registration.

 You can find your advisor’s name by logging into PAWS.  Click on the Student tab, then “Student Records” and then “View Student Information”. 


EIU uses a textbook rental system.  Textbooks will be delivered to you on the first night of each class or mailed to you for online classes. At the end of the semester, you will receive instructions on returning the textbooks.  Your fees include the textbook rental fee.

EIU’s School of Continuing Education

EIU’s School of Continuing Education (SCE) co-sponsors most of EIU’s classes at Parkland and online. Check out SCE’s website for useful information including notices of class cancellations or modifications due to weather:
