Advising

The Business Institutions office is located at 2010 Sheridan Road on Northwestern University's Evanston, Illinois campus.
Students may drop in for advising during Walk-In Advising hours or contact the office to schedule an appointment outside of these hours.

To Declare the Minor 

The minor can be declared during Business Institutions' daily walk-in advising hours.  Students will meet with a Business Institutions advisor to complete the minor declaration forms.

Note that new curricular requirements for the Business Institutions minor go into effect for all students entering Northwestern University as of Fall 2016.
Under both the Old Requirements and the New Requirements, students must complete certain prerequisite courses in order to declare the minor. See minor requirements for further details.

Students entering Northwestern in or after Fall 2016 must satisfy the New Requirements, and therefore, in particular, can only declare the minor after meeting the new prerequisite requirements.
Students entering Northwestern prior to Fall 2016 may choose to satisfy either the New or Old Requirements and should satisfy the prerequisites of the set of requirements they plan to satisfy.
Students that previously declared the minor under the Old Requirements that plan to satisfy the New Requirements are not required to complete a new declaration form. However, they must meet the prerequisite requirements as specified in the new requirements in order to graduate under the New Requirements.

To Petition to Graduate

Students who are graduating in the coming year MUST include Business Institutions on their petition to graduate form.  Please complete the petition to graduate form and meet with your major adviser prior to coming to the Business Institutions office.  Students should bring an unofficial copy of their transcript to the Business Institutions advising office.

Fill-able and printable petition forms specific to your school can be found on the website of the Office of the Registrar: Petition Forms.
