Davis College Remote Learning

Advising Services During Remote Learning Period

In adherence with campus directives, Davis College of Business & Economics Advising will postpone in-person advising and instead offer virtual services through April 17, 2020.  We continue to be committed to serving our undergraduates during this time. Our offices will still be in operation during this time period.  You can email your advisor directly or you may email davis-advising@radford.edu for assistance. 

Students are still required to discuss fall classes with their assigned advisor and receive a PIN before registering for fall courses.  Fall course registration will begin April 6, 2020. 

The drop down items below will help guide you through getting support for common questions and concerns we see in the Davis College Advising Office. If you are currently a Davis College of Business & Economics major you will also have access to the Advising D2L page for additional resources.
